Move-In Guide 1

Move-In Guide

Welcome to Campbellsville!

We’re very excited to have you here. To help you prepare to move-in and become a Tiger, we have gathered some information below.

Before You Arrive   Arrival Day   What to Bring   What Not to Bring   Safety Tips   What’s Next?

It is clear that COVID-19 has had a heavy impact on the entire world. The safety of our students, faculty and staff is of utmost importance and for this reason, the check-in process will operate with some unique changes this year. Below are the Spring 2021 Check-In Guidelines for the residence halls. Please pay careful attention and complete the steps in order to prevent missing information. We are taking necessary precautions to offer the best college experience we can, while also striving to keep all members of the CU Tiger family safe and healthy! If you have any questions about these guidelines, please reach out to your Resident Director directly or call the Office of Student Services at 270-789-5005.

Spring 2021 Check-in Guidelines

Spring 2021 Check-In will take place as an open window. Available check-in times will be Monday – Saturday (8AM – 6PM) and Sundays (1PM – 5PM). If a coach or staff member gives you a specific day outside of this window, you should sign up for that day.

  1. Students will be able to schedule their check-in time online by visiting the CUResLife scheduling site. This can be located at:
  1. Upon scheduling a time to check-in, you should complete your Housing Contract. This needs to happen beforeyou arrive on campus. The contract will take 3-5 minutes to complete. You can access the housing contract by clicking here.


  1. Check-In Day:On the day you are scheduled to arrive, please be ready at the designated check-in location at the time scheduled and wearing a mask. The designated check-in locations will be marked outside of each residence hall as “Designated Check-In Location (_Residence Hall Name_).” A CU Residence Life staff member will meet you at the door and confirm your arrival. To cut down on the amount of exposure between individuals, we ask that only one (1) guest enter the building with the student. Additional support is more than welcome to assist in unloading the vehicle, but we ask that only the student and one guest make entry into the living quarters. If you have heavy belongings and need assistance, please ask one of our CUResLife staff members to assist you in carrying the items.


  1. The student and their guest must have their temperature checked before entering the building. The CUResLife staff member will scan the individuals using a touchless thermometer. These readings will be documented and the individuals given a (green) sticker indicating their clearance to enter the residence halls. While wearing this sticker, the student and their guest may enter and exit the building as needed to move in the student’s belongings.
    • If the student or their guest show a fever, they will be asked to avoid entry into the building. The student will be given the option to check in two weeks after they show no further symptoms or will be given a quarantine room where they can be quarantined until they are cleared to enter their regular residence hall.  In either case, the student will be able to complete their coursework virtually.


  1. Students are encouraged to complete their move-in within an hour if possible. This is to prevent an overflow of students attempting to move in at the same time.


Additional Information

  • Masks are to be worn and social distancing practiced at all times during the check-in process.
  • Hand-sanitizer will be provided at all check-in locations.
  • Each student will find a health safety kit on their bed upon arrival. This includes a thermometer to assist in submitting daily health checks.
