Move-In Week 2020 was unlike any other. Coordinated by the Department of Residence Life, 2,222 students safely moved in on campus with the help of their families.

To maintain a safe and socially distanced move-in for all students, Samford established a staggered schedule over three days rather than the usual one-day event. Watch the video to hear from the newest members of the Samford family on why they chose Samford.
