Greetings, NACAS Community -At The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), recent shifts in organizational structure have changed reporting chains for elements once assigned under the Housing umbrella. As we look toward Fall '21 residential move-in, additional consideration is being given to roles & responsibilities related to this significant on-campus activity impacting 3000 student residents.
In the past, campus Parking was invited to the conversation at the end of planning and asked to support a completed plan. This year, Parking is being asked to plan traffic patterns, coordinate volunteers, and other tasks never before asked of this group.
For higher education accounts, I'm asking that you share your level of involvement in planning and executing campus move-in activities. Would also appreciate hearing best practices your campus has developed over the years to make this a successful endeavor. I'm available via phone or email at 210-458-8577 or Hillary.email@example.com for those who prefer to discuss with me directly.
Thank you in advance for your insight.
At the University of North Texas, we have a committee (including parking) that decides on the experience from beginning to end. The committee includes: Housing, Dining, Parking, Police, Enrollment Management, Union, Student Activities, Transportation, Facilities, Finance and students. This year we are considering inviting someone from the city to be engaged in the program from a city impact perspective. Parking and Transportation has helped with communication, routes to campus, staffing, signage and customer support. In the last few years, we have managed to almost eliminate lines and traffic problems.
Student, parent and staff feedback has been outstanding.

At Penn, Residential Services is responsible for coordinating Move in, and we partner with many other departments across campus, including Public Safety (Penn Police), Dining, and Parking throughout the planning stages. Typically, we begin our planning in late Fall for the coming year, after debriefing the full team on the recently completed event.
