Campus Access for Move-Out

In order to facilitate a safe and efficient move-out, students moving out of their residence halls will be required to display a temporary 30-minute parking permit or proceed through a staging lot prior to being released to their hall to load belongings during peak days for student move-out. Time spent parking at halls should be for active loading, please be sure your items are ready to move to your vehicle. Until you are ready to move items from your hall guests may park in public lots on campus.

All vehicles accessing campus beginning Sunday, May 16 for move-out should display the driver’s name and phone number on a piece of paper on the dashboard of their vehicle. While we will make every effort to contact the driver when vehicles are improperly parked, NDPD and parking services reserve the right to tow vehicles at the owner's expense.

While staging lots are open at the times listed below, students will not be able to access campus through the gates for pick ups and drop offs. Students using ride share options to assist with their move out will also need to access campus through the staging lots/

One hour prior to staging lots opening, 30-minute gate passes will not be issued at the North and Main Gate. Vehicles accessing campus for move-out should proceed to the Staging Lot listed below where vehicles will be released to halls based on parking spots available.

Please see the list of staging lots listed below; as this lot may be different than the lot used for Fall 2020 move-in.

Moving and Storage Companies

Many families and students choose to use third-party moving and storage companies at their own expense. Moving and storage companies should be aware of truck and trailer restrictions when accessing campus. Any companies wishing to access campus while staging lots are active should access campus for the residence halls at the designated staging lot. Moving and storage companies may also receive a 30-minute gate pass as needed to complete their work. Staff from moving and storage companies must follow our move-out guest rule: two guests, escorted by the resident maintaining physical distancing and wearing masks. While the University of Notre Dame does not endorse any storage companies, we are happy to connect with you to work efficiently on campus. Companies wishing to connect regarding campus policies may contact Leah Kicinski,
