Cougar Mover Volunteer

Saying “Welcome Home” to new and returning Coogs!

Each year, the Student Housing and Residential Life Opening Committee works to make the move-in process an easy and memorable experience for students and their families. Whether they are new or returning, residents should receive a warm welcome from their UH family. Thanks to the help of our staff, volunteers, and sponsors, the move-in event gets better and better each year.

The residential move-in dates are as follows:

Wednesday, Aug. 15 – Honors Move In COUGAR VILLAGE 1 ONLY

Thursday, Aug. 16 – Saturday, Aug. 18 - Cougar Village 1 & 2, Cougar Place, Moody Towers, Bayou Oaks and the  University Lofts.
