Move-In Day Lunch


Friday, August 23 & Saturday, August 24, 2019  | 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.


The Move-In Day Lunch is an annual gathering that began in 1999 when a small group of parents recognized the need to welcome the arriving class and their families on behalf of the believing community here. Each August since then, we've filled every square foot of the building with First Years, transfer students, moms, dads, siblings and, of course, sandwich fixings. Unload the U-Haul and head to Chancellor Street for lunch and conversation with Grounds ministers, University faculty, and fellow incoming students.

Are you an incoming UVA student? Have a loved one who will be new to Grounds this fall?
