MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — It’s move-in day on the Twin Cities campus of the University of Minnesota.

Thousands of freshman and their families are navigating road and building projects so they can move into their new dormitories on Tuesday.

The big move-in starts a week before classes begin and kicks off Welcome Week, which is six days of orientation and on-campus activities.

The university says some staff members will be on hand to help, including President Eric Kaler in the afternoon.

Move-in day is always a little stressful, but this year it could be more so because Washington Avenue — the main street through campus — is closed for construction of the Central Corridor Light Rail line.

    Is it really move in day?

    Are you a student? You should have received an email at your UMTC account. It should have told you the exact time to register and how to get to your dorm room, unless you are living off-campus. A lot of out-of-state and international students came here for general orientation before welcome week started, and they were allowed to move in early. The U is allowing extra move-in days due to construction and congestion on campus.
