Before Moving In
Here are some helpful hints before moving in:
Connect with Your Roommate
We encourage you to connect with your roommate before Move In! Send them an email or private message through MyUSAHousing. Share academic plans, common interests, and what each of you will contribute to your room's set-up. Learn more about your roommate within the ‘Housing Contract Status’ section of your Academic Year housing contract in MyUSAHousing (under ‘Occupancy Information’).
Check MyUSAHousing and Your JagMail
Login to MyUSAHousing to view the change important updates about your assignment and be sure to check your JagMail frequently.
Update Your Student Health Records
Prior to Move In Week 2020, you must ensure all records with student health are up to date. Submit your immunization information and upload your records/forms by logging in to the Student Health Web Portal (required for ALL residents): StudentHealth.SouthAlabama.edu
NEW for 2020-2021: Due to COVID-19, students will be required to have flu vaccination records on file with student health by January 1, 2021.
IMPORTANT: Student Health will send a questionnaire to students via their JagMail. All students must complete the questionnaire 2 days (48 hours) prior to their scheduled move in appointment.
Prepare to Pack Up
Review our Packing List for items you should bring OR leave at home. Pack belongings in easy-to-carry boxes or plastic containers. Label all boxes with your last name, building name, and room number. This way, we will know to whom the items belong should they get separated from you during Move-In.
Review Your Insurance Plan
Check your family's automobile and homeowner's / renter's insurance policy to make sure valuables and vehicles you bring to campus will be covered.
