(BLOOMINGTON) - The Indiana University Bloomington campus will become a little busier next week as students begin moving into residence halls for the 2018-19 academic year.

Undergraduates living in residence halls may begin moving in Sunday. The majority of incoming first-year undergraduates are expected to arrive Tuesday, Aug. 14 and Wednesday, Aug. 15. Heavy campus traffic is expected beginning Sunday.

Residence halls will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and several IU administrators will be on campus to greet students as they move in.

Freshman Induction Ceremony: 3 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 15, at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. The event will be:

  • Followed by a Freshman Induction picnic from 4 to 5 p.m. at DeVault Alumni Center.
  • CultureFest: 4:45 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 16, at the IU Auditorium and Showalter Foundation.
  • The Traditions and Spirit of IU: Pep rally and prize giveaway, 8 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17, at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.
  • Block Party: 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 18, at the Fee Lane and 13th Street parking lot.

Traffic patterns this year will change only slightly from Aug. 12 to 15 to accommodate traffic to and from residence halls. Changes in traffic patterns include:

  • Sunrise Drive and Campbell Street will be one way going south.
  • Woodlawn Avenue will be one way south toward between Ninth and 10th Streets only (directly in front of Collins Hall).

IU Police Department officers will be stationed at several intersections, and signs will redirect traffic.

Information on Bloomington street construction projects that could affect traffic is available from the website of the IU Office of the Vice President for Capital Planning and Facilities and the city of Bloomington InRoads site. I69 constructions updates can also be found on the INDOT website.
