Move-In Information

All students should go to the check-in location within the check-in time indicated for their group below to pick up their room key. No permission for early arrival will be granted - you must plan to arrive during your allocated time as listed below. If you belong to several of the student groups listed below, you should check-in during the group time that occurs first. If you have questions regarding which group you should check-in with, please contact the Director of Residence Life.

At the time of check-in, residents will sign their 2018-2019 Room & Board Agreement and complete other required check-in forms. Orientation begins immediately following Check-In for new students on August 23rd. If you are checking in with one of the groups that is marked with an asterisk (*), you must follow-up with your RA as well as go to the very next regular check-in time (those in bold) to pick-up and complete all the required forms. All students are required to complete an online Room Condition Report for their room within 24 hours of move-in. Failure to do so will result the inability to appeal damage charges at hall closing.

There will be signs and staff directing cars and unloading efforts during move-in. Please note that if you have an outstanding balance as of the move in date and have not completed arrangements for payment or if you have a medical hold (for incomplete paperwork), you will not be allowed to check-in or pick up a key for your room.
