Move-In on the Norman campus has officially begun, and students are making their way to their OU homes.

To help reduce the population density of the residence halls during Move-In, this year’s August Move-In process has been expanded to take place over a four-day period.

Residential students have also been asked to complete a three-step process to gain move-in clearance, including mandatory COVID-19 testing.

  1. Complete an at-home COVID-19 test. OU has partnered with Vault Health to mail students an at-home saliva-based COVID-19 test to complete in advance of their arrival to campus.
  2. Receive a negative COVID-19 test result. Test results will be emailed to students and to OU Health Services approximately 48-72 hours after their test arrives at the Vault Health lab.
  3. Complete the university’s online health screening five days prior to the student’s assigned move-in date. Students must complete this step regardless of their COVID-19 test result.

“Although COVID-19 has created unique challenges to our fall plans, we are taking proactive measures to create an on-campus living experience that is supportive and health-conscious,” said ShaRhonda Maclin, assistant dean of students and executive director for OU Housing and Residence Life.

Here are some photos from Day One of Move-In 2020.
