Parents' Guide to TAMU Move-In


Move-in is a milestone for all involved. For parents, it’s the beginning of their student’s independence. For students, it’s the first step of discovering who they are without their parents’ watchful eye. That’s the beauty of TAMU’s dorm move-in weekend. Students will feel welcomed into a new kind of family, while parents will feel reassured about leaving their student in Texas A&M’s care. 

Though moving is rarely, if ever, glamorous, it’s something of a rite of passage. Once the linens are picked out and the bags are packed, parents will want to brush up on every last TAMU move-in day detail. Remove the stress from an otherwise labor-heavy day by planning ahead for what you’ll do when. Don’t forget to leave time for some final, pre-college memories. Both parent and student alike will cherish them for the school year to come.

TAMU Move-In Day may represent an end. But it's also beginning of sorts. For students, it's the start of a brand new chapter during which they'll discover who they want to be in young adulthood and beyond. For parents, it's the beginning of one less kid in the house and a whole new set of adventures to experience with their student. Just like Texas A&M University embraces each of its new students, it also welcomes their families to experience the camaraderies of being an Aggie. Let the adventure begin!
