*For Spring 2017 If you have a continuing contract and have participated in Spring Room Re-Assignment you WILL need to move out between semesters. If you are staying in the same assignment for the full year, you will not need to move out.

**If you have a continuing contract, you do not have to move out. Between Spring and Summer or between Summer and Fall, there is a move to/from period in that week between semesters during which you will move from your current assignment to your new assignment which you coordinate with both your current and new Residence Director. We do not recommend that you make travel plans until you have this information. 


Moving hampers are available during scheduled moving days. For specific schedules by term please see the move in pages for each term linked above.

On non-scheduled days a limited number of Hampers are available in the Housing Office in Speare Hall on a first come, first served basis.

In order to borrow a hamper you must bring a government issued photo ID.


Parking Pass (PDF)

For specific parking locations by term, click on your Move-in/out Term.

Please note: Parking is not guaranteed and is based on a first come first serve basis.

Cars should clearly display a completed parking pass hang tag on their mirror or dashboard; it is important that the contact number be included in order for Northeastern staff to be able to contact you during move-in should the need arise.

Directions to Campus:

To facilitate the flow of traffic for Move-In Days we have developed these motor vehicle directions to the University unloading / parking facilities.  Depending on your assigned residence hall and where you are directed to park, you will either unload your motor vehicle at the parking location, or be asked to relocate the vehicle to a parking location after the vehicle has been unloaded. In the event that you are asked to relocate your vehicle to a University  parking facility, you will be provided with the directions to that facility upon your arrival. Please follow these directions when approaching the University.
