HRL Move-In Guide and Checklist


Housing & Residential Life (University of Minnesota)


There’s a lot to do before move-in both for incoming residents and Housing & Residential Life. For many years, Housing & Residential Life printed a large Move-In Guide that was sent to all incoming residents with their housing assignments. Prior to my arrival at the department, the decision was made to move the information to the website to save on printing and to make it easier to update.

While useful from a fiscal standpoint, the website meant information was spread across pages, and both residents/staff had to dig to find the information they wanted.

I significantly revised this website section with a focus on the needs of incoming students while also remembering items HRL needed to publicize. In particular, I added a comprehensive Move-In Checklist that helped both incoming residents and HRL staff since it contained the answers to the questions most frequently asked and then gave links to further information.
