Helpful Resources For College Move-in Day Around Pittsburgh!

It’s time to pack your car until it bursts with all of your college student’s worldly possessions and head to campus. We've compiled a list of move-in dates for Pittsburgh area universities.

Plus, a little advice. First, eat a good breakfast. You might end up sitting and waiting for a place to park and unload and you'll have more patience with a full belly.  If you pack your sense of humor, it’s possible the day can end without temper tantrums (from the parents).  Fingers crossed it’s not too hot when you’re carrying endless boxes into the dorms and if your child is a freshman, pack some tissues. It’s an emotional day for everyone.
