The summer is over and you are headed back to class. While you are settling in this semester, it is a great time to get involved with your student organizations and explore campus!

The time has finally come for you to move-in! We look forward to seeing you on move-in day and below are some tips and tricks to ensure your move-in experience is as smooth as possible!
Confirm all of your lease documents have been signed. You can verify if you have outstanding paperwork by logging on to your resident portal. You should also confirm with your guarantor that they have completed all portions of their paperwork. Your resident portal can be found HERE
Pay your first rental installment. Skip the payment line on move-in day by paying your first rental installment early. You can pay through your online resident portal (link above), or you can mail a check or money order to: 2930 Chestnut Street Philadelphia, PA 19104.
Mail or email in your renter insurance documentation prior to move-in day to skip extra paperwork. If you do not bring proof of insurance prior to move-in or at move-in, we will be required to add our own renter insurance coverage to your account in order to give you your apartment key. Our renter insurance is $11.95 per month on top of your current rental installment amount.
Sign up for a move-in time slot. We have many individuals who are excited to move-in on August 24th. To make your check-in time as short as possible, we encourage you to sign up for a time slot. Please clicking this link to reserve a move-in time HERE
Unsure what to bring to your new apartment? Below is a quick tip list for what you should pack:

Don’t mail packages to your new address until after your official move-in date. We have very limited space for mail and packages and we will not be able to accommodate your mail until you are an official resident.
We are so excited to have you living with us this year! Have friends who are looking for a last minute place to live? Let them know we have very LIMITED spaces remaining here at Evo!
