From the keyboard you can use Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Right/Left/Down/Up depending on which direction you want to move it to. To do it graphically select the workspace switcher in the Launcher (or press Super+s) and drag it from workspace to workspace while in that view. Hit return when you're finished to return to the normal view.


Just right click on the terminal's title bar and select "Move to Workspace ...". It works with any window.
