ANN ARBOR—A Labor Day weekend move-in schedule for University of Michigan students, while creating some degree of congestion around the residence halls, should not prove disruptive for Ann Arbor residents or for most U-M employees, who will not be working during the holiday weekend. Move-In begins Saturday, Aug. 30, and continues through Labor Day, Monday, Sept.1.
Working in conjunction with the City of Ann Arbor, Move-In plans call for 11 city streets on or near the U-M campus to have non-standard traffic flow from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on the three primary Move-In days. No overnight parking next to U-M residence halls will be permitted immediately before and during the move-in period.
Students may move in between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on their designated move-in day or the days which ensue according to the following schedule:
SATURDAY, AUG. 30 -- First-year and transfer students living in Baits I & II, Bursley Hall, Cambridge House, Martha Cook, East Quadrangle, Fletcher Hall, Henderson House, Alice Lloyd (Angell and Hinsdale houses), Mary Markley (Blagdon, Elliott, Reeves and Scott houses), Helen Newberry, Oxford Housing, South Quadrangle, and Stockwell Hall.
SUNDAY, AUG. 31 -- First-year and transfer students living in Betsey Barbour, Couzens, Lloyd (Kleinsteuck and Palmer houses), Markley (Butler, Fisher, Frost, Little, and VanTyne houses), Mosher-Jordan, and West Quadrangle. Returning residents living in Baits, Bursley, Cook, East Quad, Fletcher, Henderson, and Oxford.
MONDAY, SEPT. 1 -- Returning residents living in Barbour, Cambridge, Couzens, Lloyd, Markley, Mosher-Jordan, Newberry, South Quad, Stockwell, and West Quad.
The designated move-in program will ease traffic congestion on and around campus, and will help to ensure as little delay as possible to the Ann Arbor community, according to Alan Levy,. director of housing public affairs in the University Housing office. Officers from the U-M Department of Public Safety and Housing Security, and the Ann Arbor Police Department will be stationed at entry points near main intersections to assist in keeping the traffic moving and to direct students to unloading spaces near residence halls. University Housing's 300-member Welcoming Committee will greet students and their parents as they arrive at their respective residence halls. New to this year's program, nearly 600 members of U-M's Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Association, and Black Greek Association have volunteered to help move student belongings from vehicles to student rooms. Greek Life participation in move-in was successfully piloted for the first time last year.
