VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) — Next week 2,700 students are expected to move into Valdosta State University and it is expected to look more like a drive-thru.

The University is requiring students to check-in from their cars before moving into their resident's halls.

Each student is scheduled for a one-hour time slot with up to two guests and vehicles for their move-in.

The director of residential life tells us students will be sent to one of three parking lots to wait until it's their turn to move-in.

"We want to limit the number of individuals that come to campus at once," said Zduy Chu, director of housing and residents' life at VSU. "So what we've done is that we've split it up to where most of our halls are moving in on the same day but we are only limiting it to about 10 people per hour."

There is an additional lot for a one-stop-shop for students and families to go over financial aid or other university departments.

If you miss your move-in slot, you can reschedule for Saturday or Sunday.
