Just wanted to put in my two cents! I'm in college, and we moved into the dorms when Casanova was only four and a half months old, and other than him being a little stressed out about the driving, he acclimated almost immediately. I will say he's always been a pretty laid back guy who likes to explore, but so long as your dog doesn't go to pieces anytime you go on a walk or something, you should be fine. Just a word of advice, make sure to keep your pup leashed when you're first giving them the (slow) tour! If you've never taken him traveling before, such a new, large space can be a little daunting. And it is possible that he might have a slight set back in potty training, though at eight months I think you should be fine; Cas was. Anyway, hope this helps!
