We will then work with you to schedule a day and time for you to move in.

Early Arrival Information

If you need to arrive prior to your assigned move-in day (excluding the groups listed above), you must complete the Early Arrival Request FormEarly arrival request priority deadline is July 31st. If you request an early arrival after this date, you will be charged $25.00 for rush administrative services. Students who arrive without making prior arrangements may not be permitted to check into the building for at least 24 hours, pending room availability. 

Early arrival begins August 12th and individual requests for earlier dates cannot be approved. Check in hours are from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (Noon) each day. The cost for early arrival is $25.00 per night and will be applied to student accounts. 

Please note that depending on availability, it is possible that we will not be able to accommodate your request or that you may be assigned to a temporary room during your early arrival until your regular fall room is available. 

All residents approved for early arrival will be billed a night rate each day prior to August 16, 2017.

Basic "How To" Move-In Information

Please follow the directions that are available on your assigned residence hall page. Please know that if you plug in the address for the building into a GPS, it may not take you the way in which we are needing you to take on Move-In Day to reduce traffic as much as possible.

Once you follow the directions to the drive through lanes for your assigned residence hall, you will have 15 minutes to unload your items. There will be volunteers available to assist you with unloading and getting your items into your room.

After unloading, you will move your car to the designated parking area for your building. You will then return to your hall to proceed with the check-in process.
