Move in


Welcome to the community!

Welcome to the UW Bothell Residential Life program! We’re excited for you to join our community. Below is an overview of some important information regarding your arrival and move into campus. 

Moving in

We are excited to have you join our community! To make your move in a breeze, please read ALL of the information below. If you have specific questions about checking in and moving in, please email Capstone Management at 

If you are moving at the begining of the academic year in September, additional information will be emailed to residents and posted here in August prior to opening.  Please watch for emails from both Capstone and UW Bothell Residential Life for complete details.

Preparing to move in

Please make sure you have done the following:

  • Complete the Move In Checklist on the resident portal which will be sent to your UW email.  This will include:
    • Submitting a copy of your identification
    • Signing documentation
    • Submitting contact information
  • Review the What to Bring: Apartment Checklist and the Move In FAQ pages 
  • Schedule an appointment time to check in and move in

Pro TIP: Contact your roommates and coordinate what shared space items you want to share in providing in the unit (i.e. microwave, utensils, cookware, etc).  Roommate information will be emailed to residents in late August/early September.

Arriving to move in

At your schedule check in time, come to the Residential Life Front Desk in Husky Hall or at the location listed in your email.

When you arrive be sure to bring:

  • Any government issued photo identification, this includes your Husky Card or drivers' license.  
  • A face mask for you and each of the individuals helping you move in (strongly recommended).

After you’ve moved in

As you get settled in your new home, meet your Resident Advisor and get to know your roommates!

Connect to your WiFi router to make sure you have internet.  If you have trouble, please see our Xfinity Troubleshooting Guide on the Apartment Living webpage.

Your RA will be reaching out to you within one day of you moving in to welcome you and provide you with additional information about student housing.

After you have checked in, you will begin receiving mail and packages. There are specific mailing addresses that you need to use depending on the type of package.  Be sure to reference the front desk webpage for all the details.  Please do not send packages and mail prior to move in day.  We do not have space for packages and they may be returned to sender.

Housing payments will be charged to your UW student account.  You will be able to see all charges by logging into MyUW at
