LSA Movers will provide units moving into Weiser Hall with moving crates. The dimensions of the crates are 24.25” x 15.25” x 12.75”.
Tips and notes on the proper use of crates:
Place a crate on the wheeled dolly, fill crate, and close.
Place the heaviest crate on the bottom.
Set up to 3 more crates on top of first crate.
No more than 4 crates on each wheeled dolly.
Crates must be on a wheeled dolly or movers will not take them.
Label each crate on the end panel, attaching label with Scotch tape. Labels will be provided for your use.
Do not write on crates or use adhesive labels.
Noting contents on label aids in the unpacking process.
Crates of books should be labeled, “BOOKS”.
Crates are NOT to be used to move computer monitors or computer towers. Computer components (cables, mouse, keyboard, etc.) can be placed inside a large Ziploc bag and the bag can be packed inside a crate.
Weiser Hall is now open, and units have begun occupying the building! After several years of planning, it is very exciting to see the project so close to completion and to see people start using the space. Several tools have been created to help people adapt to working at Weiser Hall and to have reference materials about building features and reservable rooms.
In preparation for moving to Weiser Hall, staff and faculty from occupant units are invited to participate in retreats during the month of May. These meetings are being organized by floor, so that people sharing a common space will be able to collectively set expectations for working. The goal is to work together to establish norms while building connections.
Each retreat will take about 2.5 hours, with lunch served either at the beginning or end of the session. The basic agenda we will follow is below.
The Visual Resources Collection (VRC) in History of Art offers assistance to departments that are digitizing their files, including film, slides, negatives, and printed materials. Click below for a PDF that explains their services and provides contact information.
Units will begin moving into Weiser Hall in mid-July, which is 102 calendar days from today! That may seem like plenty of time, but there are some things that can be done now to avoid a last-minute rush.
LSA Facilities has created a Moving Guide with some tips and resources related to moving. While some of these tasks are being managed for Weiser Hall units, the guide is a handy reference about the overall process.
You must be logged into a U-M Google account to view the Moving Guide, which can be accessed here.
Now is the time to prepare for the move to Weiser Hall by sorting through files and deciding what does and does not need to be taken to the new space. If you’re not sure what documents the department needs to keep, please see the LSA Records Retention Policy for current guidelines.
Units may want to scan documents rather than discard them. If that’s the case, consider using ITS Imaging Services, which can assist with scanning and digitizing files.
For secure shredding, U-M’s strategic supplier is Corrigan. With a shortcode, they can deliver bins that they will later pick up and take for shredding. See the Corrigan flyer or reach out to the contact:
For information about how to order new business cards, letterhead, and envelopes with Weiser Hall addresses, please see the “Weiser Hall business card, stationery ordering” resource. It is recommended that new materials are ordered approximately 2-4 weeks prior to moving into Weiser Hall. For large units with many business cards, ordering up to 6 weeks in advance is advisable.
Are you wondering what the address of one of the future occupants of Weiser Hall will be? LSA Facilities has confirmed that each floor of the building will be identified in campus mail and by campus emergency personnel as “Suite X00.” For example, units on the second floor will share the mailing address of Suite 200. Individual offices within the space have assigned room numbers. The official mailing address is as follows:
Weiser Hall 500 Church Street, Suite X00 Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1042
