Move-In DayThe check-in process will begin at your assigned residence hall. In your residence hall lobby, you will be received by the Residence Hall Director and Resident Assistant (RA) staff. They will provide all necessary check-in materials and your room key.

Once you complete the check-in process, you may begin moving your items into your room. The residence halls have elevator and stair access as well as volunteer move-in helpers to make the process as smooth as possible.

Parking is available surrounding the residence halls. As this can be a busy day, please use your time efficiently and allow yourself extra time.

Remember, it is your responsibility to maintain an environment that is conducive to studying, relaxing, and building a positive experience during your stay in the residence halls.

Tips for Moving In

• Decide what you need in order to function on campus.

• Bring items which will make you feel comfortable and make your room feel like home. These could be such things as a television/Blu-ray player, video game system, pictures, tablet/laptop, etc.

• If you requested a roommate, communicate with him/her prior to arrival about items which you may want to share.

• Please review the FAQ section “What should I bring?” so you will be in compliance with housing regulations.
