Return to campus: Getting ready for move in

What to Expect on Move-in Day

Welcome! Our team works hard to ensure that Move-In Day is as easy as possible for you and your family. Move-in for resident students begins on August 19 on both New Jersey campuses.

We are committed to making your on-campus living one of the most memorable FDU experiences. Please refer to your email to determine your assigned date and time.

All Returning Students 

Sunday, August 22

Like hundreds of colleges and universities throughout the country, FDU is requiring all students to get fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Given the widespread guidance and recommendations about vaccination from the scientific and medical communities, we believe this requirement will help us safely return to high levels of in-person engagement and experiences.   

If you have not yet done so, please get vaccinated as soon as you can.  You MUST submit evidence of COVID-19 vaccination using Medicat, the University’s health information system. We ask that students who plan to reside on campus submit documentation immediately in order to ensure a smooth return to campus. You will not be able to move in if you have not submitted documentation unless granted an exemption.

Please note during the move-in process, face masks are required for students and their guests while inside any building on campus.
