Stop, Drop And Roll

Stop, Drop, and Roll is an optional part of move in that allows you to sign up for a time slot to drop off items in your room and set up for the fall semester, but you will not stay on campus. We strongly recommend you take advantage of Stop, Drop, and Roll if you are able to do so, as there will be limited parking in and around the halls during traditional move-in beginning on August 14.

July 26 – August 4*

*Please Note: Not all halls are available on each day, please see the schedule (Coming Soon) for when your hall is available.

You will receive an iSpartan email by July 7th, with detailed instructions and a link on how to sign up for a time slot for Stop, Drop, and Roll.

  1. Find your Residence Hall on the schedule
  2. See what dates your hall is available.
  3. Sign up for a time slot in Artemis.

Please Note that you will need to receive your Spartan Card to participate in Stop, Drop, and Roll. Students who submit their picture to the Spartan Card Center by July 15, will get their Spartan card where they get their key. If you do not submit a picture, will need to visit the Spartan Card Center during operational hours Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. AVERAGE WAITING TIME IN LINE IS 20-50 MINUTES.

  • Have conversations with your roommate(s) prior to arrival, to minimize purchasing or bringing duplicate items.

  • Make a plan to receive your Spartan Card prior to or at your arrival to campus.
  • Residents should bring their own handtrucks, carts, and other assistive devices to aid in the move-in process, if possible.
  • Keep checking your email for more information regarding parking and where to check in.

Please report to your designated Check in location during your time slot. A detailed email will be sent to you regarding where to report.You will need your id readily available to receive your key.

  • Check in at your designated area.
  • All residents will receive their room key when they arrive.
    • New students will receive their UNCG ID card (Information on getting your Spartan Card will be emailed to your “@uncg.edu” email address).
    • Returning students should already have their Spartan ID and should bring it with them when they arrive to campus.
  • A limited number of carts will be available, and can be checked out during this time.
  • Please pay attention to the clock as you unload your belongings and move into your room. We ask that you adhere to the time slot you have signed up for.
  • If you see any maintenance concerns, please submit a Fixt Request.
  • Once your time period has ended, you will need to leave the residence hall. No one may spend the night in any residence hall during Stop, Drop, and Roll.
  • After you have dropped off items, please proceed directly to your parking space and leave the parking lot as quickly as possible. Residents in the subsequent time slot will need to park in those spaces.

Residents will not need to check in again when they return to campus for Move In.

You must first check in at your designated location and then you can proceed to unload at your residence hall.

Only one vehicle, per resident should be parked in this area. Additional vehicles can be parked in Lot 1S (Behind Jefferson Suites), Lot 9 (Behind the Baseball Stadium) , or the McIver/Oakland Parking Decks. Vehicles parked in fire lanes, or other areas not designated for parking will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

Traditional Move IN

Move In is when students are able to move in to their spaces and stay for the Fall semester. Students are assigned a suggested Move In Day to help mitigate traffic and wait times.

If you attended Stop, Drop and Roll, most or all of your belongings should be in your room already. In this case all you will need to do is bring any last minute items and move into your Residence Hall for the fall. You will have already received your room key and will be able to proceed to your room without checking in again.
