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 this meant residents and staff had to dig to find the information.

I significantly revised this website section with a focus on the needs of incoming students while also remembering items HRL needed to publicize. I was proud to create a Move-In Checklist that was helpful both for incoming students and HRL staff as it contained answers to the questions asked most frequently and then linked to additional information when necessary.
