Campus is quickly filling back up with students moving into residence halls and some lanes in the area have been closed to give students more space to unload.
It's the middle of August already which means it's time for students to return to campus.
Students have already begun moving into their residence halls and campus is buzzing with excitement of the new year. Witney Erwin says, "I'm really excited to get all my stuff in there and hang out with my roommate and just start meeting everybody."
Ivy and Eden Diehl say, "finally living on our own I guess...I mean you love living with your parents but then you finally get to move out and be independent."
Greek hopefuls and residents of The Village and The Courtyards will begin moving in early this week.
UNL housing schedules separate move–in dates to help with the crowding. They said closing down lanes on 16th and 17th streets is to allow areas for students to unload their cars more quickly. Keith Zaborowski with UNL Housing says, "it's an emotional time for most of the parents if it's their first child going... And so they anticipate some waiting and we try to minimize that the most we can."
UNL housing suggests students and their parents to download the move–in guidebook app. It has time saving–tips and all the information students need to know about moving into their residence hall.
Move–in for the rest of the students will begin on Thursday.
Roughly 3,000 will be unloading, so drivers in the campus area may experience some delays. 16th and 17th streets will each have lane closures all this week.
Drivers can expect the streets to be fully open again on Saturday after 10 a.m.
