Colorado State University Off-Campus Move-In Tips

With the 2018-2019 school year just five days away it is time to start thinking about moving into your CSU off-campus housing here at the Landmark Apartments. Sure, some of you have been here with us since August 1, but some students are on their way to Fort Collins with moving trucks or trailer in tow. If you have not already moved into your CSO off-campus housing, this blog post is dedicated to you! During this post, we will discuss a few tips and tricks that might come in handy during your move-in.

Don’t Move In At The Same As Your Roommate

We are going to go over a number of tips and tricks today that will help make your move-in more smooth, but if there is one tip that trumps the rest it is to avoid at all costs moving in at the same time as your roommates. Sure, you may not have seen them all summer, but it will just complicate things as you move into your new three bedroom apartment in Fort Collins. “What is the harm in moving in while my roommates do?”, you might ask. Well to put it simply, there is one doorway into the apartment, and there are three of you! Not to mention your awesome parents or friends that you shouldn’t forget to thank for helping you move.

DO NOT Take The Prospect Exit

While yes, your new Fort Collins apartment near CSU is located on the intersection of prospect and Shields, we urge you to take the Harmony exit and drive the back way. Why? Remember all that freshman move-in traffic that you had to deal with last year when you lived on campus? Well, it is going to be worse this year. This year, over 8,100 students will be moving into their new on-campus digs, whether that be the dorms, or students living in the university apartments. Trust us, save yourself some time and drive the extra mile!

Strategically Place Your Boxes

Since you did such a good job labeling your boxes (we hope) upon packing them, it is important to be mindful of how you place them in your apartment. Sure, it might seem more beneficial to simply get everything into the apartment before you even begin to think about unpacking, it is crucial for you to strategically place the boxes. Do you need plates for dinner the night that you move in? Then be sure to put the box labeled plates on top of other boxes, not buried under a mountain of other boxes. Are you planning on putting your bed in the northwest corner of your bedroom? Well, it might not be too smart to put a mountain of boxes there. By strategically placing boxes around your CSU off-campus apartment you will save yourself the strain of moving the box twice.
