Efficiently Managing the Move-In Process

This is some text inside of a div block.
The stress and chaos of move-in day effects residents, their families, and campus staff. Baylor University has prepared students and staff for this day with the StarRez student self-service tools. By streamlining the move-in process, new students and parents are equipped for the move-in process.

“Move-in can be a stressful day – especially in the Texas heat.  With StarRez we were able to provide personalized information to our students about Move2BU.  The robust StarRez tools allowed us to effectively communicate with resident, efficiently check students in upon arrival, and ensure all facilities were ready for the students.”
