Fall 2023 Move-In

Move-In Day is one of the most exciting days of the year for college students! Move-In Day 2023 will be on Wednesday, August 16 for new PC students and Saturday, August 19 for current students.

Below you will find all the details you need to know.

Check-In First

You and your guests must check in inside Smith Administration Building when you arrive on campus. The only exception to this arrival location will be pre-approved early arrivals, who will be provided specific information on how to arrive on campus. All students and guests will need to complete the check-in process.

What You’ll Do in Smith Administration Building

Several campus offices will have check-in areas set up in Smith Administration Building. You’ll check in to the following areas when you go to Smith Administration Building:

  • Admissions (check-in)
  • The Business Office/Student Accounts
  • Campus Police (parking passes)
  • Financial Aid
  • Health Services (drop off paperwork if necessary)
  • Residence Life (ID cards and keys for new students)

Please complete as much information as you can for these offices electronically before you arrive on campus.


If you have questions or concerns about housing, please email the Residence Life office (reslife@presby.edu) or call them at 864-833-8277.
The office is open between 8:30 and 5:00 Monday through Friday. Once move-in begins, staff members will be available after 5:00 pm and on weekends to help address more urgent on-campus needs you may have.

Your Meal Plan

If you’re living in a residence hall, you may choose the All-Access meal plan (default) or Premium Access Meal Plans (additional cost with additional Bonus Bucks). You may select the 160-block meal plan if you live in Spradley, the Townhouses, Scottish Arms, or the Staton Hall, or you are student teaching this Fall semester. An additional meal plan is available if you are a commuter.

Please contact the Residence Life Office if you are an approved commuter and are interested in a limited meal plan. If you need to make a change, please do so immediately by emailing Residence Life with your name, ID number, and to which plan you would like to be changed. We are unable to make changes once classes begin, so please do this as soon as possible.

Rooms and Roommates

Please check BannerWeb to confirm your roommate for the fall semester. Some students’ room assignments have changed recently.

If you have been assigned a new roommate, their contact information should be in BannerWeb for you to connect with them. Spaces cannot be held in double rooms. You might have been assigned a new roommate if you had a space open in your room.

If you do not currently have an assigned roommate, please be aware that we continue to make assignments even as the start of the academic year approaches. Please be aware that there are no single rooms available and very few remaining open spaces at this time.
