How to Successfully Move into Residence


Check Move-In Planning Guide for your move-in day routes and guides. It will provide you with the date and time you're scheduled to move-in. Please try to follow the scheduled time as closely as possible in order to ensure a successful move in day for all students!

If you're travelling from far away and would like to stay overnight in London, be sure to book your accommodations early! Check the London Tourism webpage for places to stay!

If you're moving in on your designated move-in day, there will be hundreds of sophs (upper-year student volunteers) here to greet you and welcome you to Western. They will help unload your personal belonging so you don't even have to lift a finger! You can easily identify these volunteers with their bright uniforms and Western pride! Please make sure to label your belongings, so your luggage is not lost in transit.

Try to pack light and only include the essential items! Things like your winter clothes can wait until you go home for Thanksgiving. Check out the Move-In Planning Guide for more packing tips.

Western's Orientation Week is dry, meaning that everyone participating agrees not to consume alcohol for the week, even students 19 and over. As many students are not of age when they come to residence, this helps create a positive bonding atmosphere for all!

A reminder to please leave any packages with alcoholic branding at home. In the spirit of our OWeek, our sophs will not move any belongings packed in beer/alcoholic beverage boxes.

Events start the night of your move-in day, so say your good-byes, get energized, and ready to begin the best four years of your university life!
