Approval for Early Arrival
Can I move into on-campus housing before the campus Move-In Day?
With advance approval from the housing office, yes. It requires additional coordination with our team to ensure that your space can be cleaned and prepared for move-in earlier than Move-In Day. Please note that in some situations, we may require you to move into a temporary space if your permanent room isn’t ready yet.
Am I eligible for early arrival?
Early arrival is available for members of the following groups:
- Blue Thunder Marching Band
- College Assistance Migrant Program
- Honors College
- International Students
If you are not an approved participant of one of the groups listed above, you may apply for early arrival under the following circumstances:
- You have a job or internship on campus that requires you to start before Move-In Day
- You have a compelling reason for needing to be on campus before Move-In Day for which you can provide a detailed explanation and documentation
How do I apply for early arrival?
We will be accepting Fall early arrival requests from June 15 through August 1. Early move-in isn’t available for the spring semester.

How will I know if I'm approved for early arrival?
You’ll receive an email from us with approval or denial for your early arrival request. If you haven’t received an email from us, your request has not been approved. The email will confirm your approved date for move-in. If you would like an update on your request, please reach out to us at email@example.com or (208) 447-1001.
We will not be able to move you into your assigned space if you arrive on campus without approval or before your approved early arrival date.
How much does early arrival cost?
There will be a charge of $22.50 per day added to your student account, from the date you move in until Move-In Day. If you’re moving in early as part of a student organization or team, these fees may be paid for by your sponsoring department. Contact your coach or administrator to confirm whether or not your fees will be covered. You are responsible for the costs of moving in early.
Can I move directly into my permanent housing assignment?
This depends on who is living there currently and how quickly we can prepare the room for your arrival. You may be required to move into a temporary space until your permanent suite and room are ready.
