Residential Life

From your first-year move-in day to Commencement, Bucknell is your home. Keeping that home safe and healthy is a responsibility for everyone — students, faculty and staff.

To preserve as many of Bucknell's signature in-person experiences as possible, the University has made some essential modifications to housing and the move-in process.


More than ever before, you'll need to take ownership of your space. That means keeping it clean, following good health practices and holding your hallmates accountable.

Bucknell has worked to provide a clean and safe living environment for students, but a healthy campus depends on you.

Move-in and Move-out

To minimize the health risk to students, faculty and staff, the process for arriving at and departing campus will look a little different this year.

You'll make an appointment for a move-in time, be asked to limit the number of items you bring and be limited to one guest per student inside residence halls.
