First-Year Student Move-In Information

First-Year Student Move-In Day is Friday, Aug. 14, 2020.

The Office of Residence Life has reduced the density of the residential halls and increased cleaning of all common spaces. Traditional style double-occupancy rooms are being converted to single-occupancy rooms.

Fall 2020 move-in will be staggered to minimize potential exposure to and spread of COVID-19. Students will be assigned a move-in date and time and will be limited to having only two move-in helpers during their assigned time. The move-in process and procedures will be shared with students via their Westminster email by July 17.

Shipping Items to Campus

Since our ability to manage and store large quantities of shipped items is limited, we encourage students not to ship items ahead of their arrival. Students who live at a distance that prevents them from being able to drive their items into the city can arrange to have things shipped to arrive on campus after the official move-in weekend. These students are strongly advised to travel with everything they will need for the first few days of living in the residence halls until they have access to their mailed items.

Parking Permit

Any student is allowed to have a car on campus. Should you decide to bring your car to campus, you must register it and pay for a parking permit that will allow you to park in one of the parking areas on campus. You can buy parking permits online with a credit card.

Student ID

Student IDs are necessary for access to any residence hall after move-in day and for your meal plan. Your ID has a chip in it and acts like a debit card—you will need it each time you spend money in the cafeteria. You can pick up a student ID during scheduled hours in the Health, Wellness, and Athletic Center on or before move-in day.


All mail should be sent to:

Campus Technology Support

Westminster supports both Windows and Mac computers. On campus, computers are equipped with Windows 10, the Microsoft Office Suite, multiple web browsers, and many more academic applications. The Information Services department staffs a support phone, 801.832.2023, 7 days a week that students may call for technical support. Information Services also maintains technology support resources including do-it-yourself instructions for common technical issues.

Student Laptop Requirements

All incoming students are required to have access to a laptop computer running, at a minimum, Windows 10 or Mac OSX 10.7.1+. At this time, tablet computers are not supported. With a laptop, students will be able to access Westminster Anywhere, a program allowing students to directly access files and academic programs, both in class and at home. Students can certify their laptops for use by visiting the General Computer Lab, located in the Giovale Library.

Computer Account Resources

Every student account includes an email address, 2GB of backed-up network storage space, Wi-Fi access, and access to academic software. Students also have access to Office 365, allowing them to use the Office Suite online or on their own computer. Residential students also have access to the RecNet network, which supports personal devices such as Xbox, Roku, AppleTV, and others. Informational sessions on computer accounts, Office 365, and how to set up RecNet are held during New Student Orientation. If you are unable to attend orientation, you may visit the General Computer lab for assistance.
