Tips on how to make moving to or from MSU Billings easier
Moving can deny you peace of mind and consume a lot of time and money especially if you don’t organize yourself well. Here are the tips that can help you have a smooth move to or from MSU Billings.
Plan your move in advance: Read more about residential and student life and choose the housing option that suits you best. There are two main residential halls in Billings; Petro and Rimrock halls. The Petro Hall has a capacity of 500 rooms while Rimrock Hall has 300 rooms. You can also consider student family housing which has two and three bedroom units.
Once you have booked an apartment or dorm, have an idea of the size, utilities offered, the number of roommates and what you should bring and not bring with you. For example, rooms in Rimrock and Petro Halls have an approximate size of 14' x 11'. Each room contains two desks, a sink, two closets, curtains, two chairs, two beds and internet access.
- Prepare: Once you have decided on what to carry, what not to carry and how to move, it is time to put your household together. Buy what you don’t have, sell or donate what you don’t need. Also, get the moving boxes and other packing materials ready.
- Start packing: Don’t wait until the last day. Come up with a packing plan and start packing carefully and neatly. Pack only the essential items you need.
- Hire a mover: Moving on your own can be hectic and more costly in the end. Hiring a mover will make your move much easier.
