How do I know if I am eligible to Move In?

Students must meet the following criteria in order to be eligible to move in. Students should not just show up to Move-In Day unless all of the criteria are met. We really do not want you to make the drive if we are unable to let you move in.

  • Students must be fully accepted to CSU, and must be registered for at least 1 class.
  • Students must have applied for housing and paid an application fee and activity fee. Students are not able to move into a room the same day that the housing application is submitted.

Homeowner's or Renter's Insurance

Columbus State University does not assume any obligation or responsibility for injury to any person, or loss of or damage to any personal property. Residents are encouraged to purchase appropriate insurance to cover such possible losses and to take valuables with them during break periods.

The following site has some useful information on the benefits of renter's insurance:

To help you with your research, here are links to three insurance companies that market themselves to college campuses:

CSI Insurance Agency, Inc.
National Student Services, Inc.
SallieMae Insurance Services

CSU does not recommend any particular company over another, nor do we endorse their services. These three companies have developed successful reputations on college and university campuses around the country.

Along with these companies, most other insurance companies which sell home owner's insurance will also sell "renter's insurance" to students in college residence halls. Families are encouraged to check with their own insurance companies to shop for the best deal.
