Move-in week begins at CU Boulder

The class of 2027 has begun its CU Boulder journey with a week of move-in activities scheduled.

BOULDER, Colo — The first of thousands of college students made their way to their new homes in Boulder on Monday as the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU) welcomed students back to campus for the start of move-in week.

Aided by their families, undergraduates kicked off their CU journey by moving into dorms and beginning orientation.

CU said its move-in process is spread out over several days and is based on student-selected move-in appointments. CU said orientation sessions through Sunday, Aug. 27, will introduce new students to life as a CU Buff.

CU officials noted that U.S. 36, Baseline Road, Broadway and Arapahoe Avenue around campus will have additional traffic throughout the move-in process.

Classes at CU Boulder begin Monday, Aug. 28.
