Montana State University is suggesting routes that will help students moving to campus Aug. 23-25 to navigate traffic patterns changed for the university’s annual move-in period.

MSU officials have notified all incoming freshmen with instructions for efficient alternate routes. A map to recommended routes is posted online.

MSU expects that nearly 4,000 students will move into university residence halls during the traditional three-day move-in period.

James Tobin, assistant director for MSU Residence Life, said all students checking into residence halls have received assigned check-in times. Freshmen have been assigned times from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 23. Returning students may check in after 3:30 p.m. on that day. More information may be found on the Residence Life Move-In Day webpage.

Kurt Blunck, MSU’s manager of parking services, suggests that MSU employees avoid 11thAvenue, south of the roundabout at College Street, on Aug. 23 to avoid creating congestion. Also, Cleveland Street will be designated one way eastbound for the period, he said.

MSU Residence Life has posted a specific mapping system utilizing Google Maps at https://www.montana.edu/reslife/images/residence_life-move_in_day-map-2017-01.jpg

Those streets with directional changes will be in effect from 8 a.m. through 6 p.m. Aug. 23-25.
