Move-In Dates

New Students who attended June Orientation will move in any time on August 18th from 9:00 am until 4 pm and Returning Students will move in on August 19th or August 20th from 9:00 am until 4 pm. Students who may need to move in early or late will need to reach out to the Office of Residence Life via email at
The check-in process will begin in front of the bell tower where you will be received by our Residence Life 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. 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.

Please note: First Year Students who are attending August orientation will check in early on the 17th to attend Orientation on the 18th.

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, video game system, pictures, tablet/laptop, etc.
  • If you requested roommates, communicate with them 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.
