About 6,000 undergraduate students will be moving into the 13 Penn College Houses during Move-In 2022.

Students are arriving on Penn’s campus this week to get ready to start the 2022-23 academic year. Move-In officially begins Monday with international, transfer, exchange, and first-generation students. Tuesday and Wednesday will be busy days, with the Class of 2026 first-years moving in across campus. Returning students will arrive Friday through Sunday. Staff at the University’s undergraduate College Houses have been working for months to prepare for these arrivals.
