Move-In Weekend

When is Move-In Weekend?

We are excited to soon welcome you to campus! Spring 2022 Move-In Weekend for residential students will be Sunday, January 16 and Monday, January 17

All students (regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status) will need to provide a negative COVID-19 antigen or PCR test result that is taken on/after January 11, 2022, prior to your return to campus. The copy of this test result should be emailed to healthclinic@uvawise.edu.  You will not be cleared to return to campus until the Health Clinic has reviewed your result.
