Spartan Move-in

Help Welcome New Students to Campus

MSU Campus

Welcome new students to the MSU family when you volunteer for Spartan Move-in,  August 25-26, 2018.



Since 2011, the MSU Alumni Association has partnered with Residence Education and Housing Services to bring alumni and community members to campus for residence hall move-in. The Spartan Move-in program lets volunteers select the campus neighborhood where they want to work, with most people choosing to go back to where they lived as a student.

In appreciation of the work volunteers do, they are given a move-in t-shirt and a complimentary meal in one of MSU’s award-winning residence hall dining services.

PLEASE NOTE: to ensure the safety of all involved, no one under the age of 13 may accompany volunteers to their site.



  • 7:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m.
  • 10:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
  • 1:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m.

With more than 500 people coming back to help each year, we provide more than 3,000 hours of service annually to help make Michigan State move-in smooth and enjoyable for our new students.
