Fall 2023 Move-In

Move-In 2023 will take place in August! You will be able to reserve your Move-In timeslot beginning July 10, 2023.


New Students

Your JagCard is the official Augusta University access card and ID card for all students! This allows access to enter your on-campus housing location and use your Flex Dollars, weekly swipe, and on-campus printing. Your card also gives you entry to the on-campus Recreation Center and free entry into some games and events. You need to pick up your card from the JagCard Office before you can move in.

The JagCard Office will be at the Move-in for First-Years August 10-12!

Returning Students

Bring your JagCard to move in.

Lost your JagCard and need a replacement? All you have to do is go to the JagCard Office located in the Jag1Stop on the first floor of the Annex I building. We encourage you to pick up your card before your scheduled move in date, so there is no delay in your check-in process.

The JagCard Office will be at the Move-in for Returners August 14-16!
