During these challenging times with COVID-19, Residential Living will be changing some of our processes, including how move-in day will work, to ensure the safety and well-being of our residential population.

These rules apply to ALL residential students unless otherwise specified:


Preparing for Move-In Day

  • First-Year students will be assigned a time to move in
    • SAIL Move-In- August 3
    • Non-SAIL Move-In- August 6
    • If the time assigned to you does not work, please contact
  • Upper-Class students will be emailed a link to sign up for a time to move in
    • Upper-class/transfer move in- August 8 and 9
  • Prior to move-in, the student will be asked to sign a Piedmont Pledge where they provide consent and state they understand the risk they are taking by living in the residence hall and that they will follow the protocols observed by the institution to ensure the safety of the residential population.
  • Move-in will take place from  8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the days listed above and students will be given 1.5-hour shifts to get items moved in.
  • The student will be allowed up to two individuals to help them move in.
    • If more than two individuals are present, they will be asked to wait in their car or in the Student Commons.
    • For students needing additional persons or more time is needed to help with move-in, contact for accommodations.
  • Students should consider bringing minimal items due to the limited amount of time allotted to move into your fall housing assignment.

What to expect on Move-In Day

  • Students must successfully complete a screening process. (ex. questionnaire, temperature check)
  • The pre-screening survey will also be available in Spanish if needed
  • If occupant or assisting individual has a fever of 100.4 degrees or over, they will not be permitted to move in
  • Upon check-in, a Piedmont professional will provide disposable gloves to all individuals in the vehicle who do plan to assist with moving the student into the halls. We encourage you to bring your own mask, but if you do not have one, a disposable one will be provided.
  • The student must then be cleared with financial aid/business office, have health insurance, and have all housing documents turned in prior to moving into the halls.
  • Students will be directed to the residence halls and will unload their vehicle and drop off their items in the hall’s lobby. They will then be asked to park their vehicle prior to taking their items to their room.
  • If the student arrives early, they will be asked to wait until their given time or until the hall is cleared for them to move in.
  • If the student arrives late, they will need to call 706-968-3377 to coordinate their move-in.
  • These rules are subject to change based on the changes of the COVID-19 situation
  • If you have any questions about move-in, please contact
