Time blocks will be between 7:00 AM until 7:00 PM by appointment only. With thousands of residents moving in each semester, we stagger the check-in times
and dates in order to provide everyone the best move-in experience possible. Please
schedule your move-in time according to your specific hall move-in date.
Due to ongoing concerns regarding infectious diseases (COVID-19 and Monkeypox), volunteers
will not assist with move-in his fall.

Florida A&M University (FAMU) Housing has adopted the position that there is no COVID
testing or vaccination requirement to live on campus. Due to the broad availability
of COVID vaccines and personal protective items, i.e. face coverings, etc., like other
State University System (SUS) institutions, FAMU is no longer offering COVID isolation
spaces for students who test positive. The University does not have the capacity or available space to accommodate for isolation
Effective Fall 2022, students who test positive for COVID are permitted to isolate
in their residence hall room, regardless of whether they have a roommate or not. Students
always have the choice to isolate off-campus, however, they are not required to do
Students should contact the Student Health Center for information about medical services
available on campus, including COVID testing and vaccines.Students are encouraged to follow CDC COVID-19 Community Levels (COVID-19 Community Levels | CDC) and their guidance for making decisions about individual prevention behaviors.
