Mankato, Minn. -- Fall “move-in day” for students at each of Minnesota State Mankato’s residence communities is Thursday, Aug. 20, when more than 3,000 students will begin moving into on-campus housing at 9 a.m. The first day of fall classes is Monday, Aug. 24.
More than 4,000 vehicles are expected on campus Aug. 20-21, as students, parents and friends move student belongings into four campus residence hall communities. The university will again provide faculty-staff volunteers to assist with logistics, as well as traffic-control officers to direct the flow of cars.
Drivers to campus are asked to temporarily avoid main access streets such as Stadium Road and Val Imm Drive, and core-campus streets, and to park in remote lots on Thursday. A map is available here along with additional parking information.
There’s no scheduled move-in day for thousands of additional returning students who live in private, off-campus apartments. Many will return to Mankato on the weekend (Aug. 21-23) prior to the start of classes.
WELCOME WEEK ACTIVITIES: A full slate of activities are planned for students as they return to campus or begin their first year at Minnesota State Mankato. A full schedule is available here.
Minnesota State Mankato, a comprehensive university with 15,376 students, is part of the Minnesota State Colleges & Universities system, which comprises 31 state institutions.
