Moving to Campus

Welcome to UW-Superior, we are excited to have you as part of our community!  Please note that most of this information is directed at new UW-Superior students. This page will provide you with the information you need to know about moving to campus as a new, incoming student. We have also included information at the bottom of the page for returning UW-Superior students. If you are a returning UW-Superior student, please scroll to the bottom of this page.

When: Click on your program below for specific dates and times. If you do not believe one of the programs represents you, click on the “All other new UW-Superior students” button. NOTE: If you are in multiple programs/groups, you will move in on the earliest noted date and time. 

Where do I go to check-in to my residence hall?

STEP 1: Go to the  Yellowjacket Union (YU) to start your Residence Hall Check-in process. You will also check in for WoW at the same time. 

STEP 2: Drive to your residence hall to park and unload your personal items. DO NOT go to your hall first as you will not be able to get into your room until you have checked in at the Yellowjacket Union (YU) first. (Returning students will check-in at their hall.)

Where should I park?

First Stop: Yellowjacket Union – park in Lot 2 or 11

Next Stop: Your residence hall – park in the associated lots. Parking will not be allowed in front of the buildings during move-in. 


  • Parking permits will not be required in these lots during move-in. However, parking in metered spaces without payment and/or in ADA accessible spaces without proper permits will result in a citation.
  • Those planning to keep a car on-campus will need to purchase a parking permit for the semester. 

Map and Directions: Please refer to the campus map to locate the parking lots, YU and other buildings as needed.

Services Tabling

A number of services will be available in a one-stop format right in the YU during the designated check-in time during the August 31, Sept 2, and Sept 4 move-in events. These will include areas such as admissions, financial aid, bill payment, parking services, as well as our bookstore. This one stop tabling will not be available during fall athlete move-in, however those offices will be open on campus until 4:30 pm those days.
