Move-in Day

Move-in Day Parking

Street parking is first come first serve. Another option is the Downtown SouthWest Garage.

If you have added parking to your lease, you can park in the Sweetwater garage after 6pm on the day that you move in.

Getting in and out of the garage will be difficult during move-in weekend, and we recommend not moving your car unless you must.
