Subject: Move-In Week
We hope you have had a great summer and are ready to welcome you for a great first year as a University of Kentucky freshman! As you know, the week of August 16 is Move-In Week at UK, where you and all your new classmates will converge upon campus to settle in for the invaluable next several months. To ensure that everything moves smoothly over the next few days. Please note the following information BEFORE your move-in date.
â™¦By the sounds of unison clapping and horn music, you will notice that both the sororities and the marching band have already moved onto campus. Other scheduled groups with a designated move-in period include:
August 17: Gymnastics Team (Woodland Glen III)
August 18: French Sciences Majors (Tableau PÃ©riodique Building)
August 19: Affluent Females (Daryl Hall)
Open move-in is available for all other students throughout the week.
â™¦Lexington traffic patterns will be altered during move-in week to help create a more conducive flow. Please pay attention to the following changes:
-Euclid Avenue will only be open for one hour each day (10:45-11:45 am).
-Limestone Avenue will be only accessible by horse.
-New Circle Road will be one way North-South from the Newtown Exit to the Leestown Rd. Exit, one way South-North from the Harrodsburg Road Exit to the Versailles Road Exit and closed between the Versailles Road Exit and the Old Frankfort Pike Exit.
-Richmond Road will be Tates Creek Road.
â™¦So as not to break any of your items during move in, it is best to unpack your boxes at your automobiles and bring each item into your residence quarters one at a time.
â™¦If your housing assignment includes the residence areas Brown Hall, Conover Hall West or Harrington Hall, please be aware that these residence buildings belong to the University of Delaware.
â™¦Hot plates are not allowed in residence halls. If you suspect you may have a hot plate, please alert a member of the wait staff who can inform you if the plate is hot.
â™¦Please, no parking in designated unloading areas or on the dance floor.
â™¦If your roommate is a murderer, please fill out a student residence grievance form. Student residence grievance forms are available at the Office of Housing and Residence Life with proof of murder.
â™¦Many of the university’s athletics teams will be on-hand to assist you this week; please don’t hesitate to ask a member of the basketball team to slam dunk your television or for a member of the rifle team, who can shoot your couch with a gun.
â™¦If you ride a bicycle please see your residence hall advisor about bicycle parking near your dormitory. Also, stop tucking your pants into your socks because that looks ridiculous.
If everyone follows these basic guidelines this year’s move-in should go smoothly and according to plan. Please direct any further questions you may have on your move-in toward the Student Life department and we will be happy to snap a picture of you carrying a mini-fridge to put in our annual scrapbook of people moving things. Here’s to a great year!
Assistant Department Head, Student Life
