Before Move-In Day
When is Move-In Day?
Move-in day will take place on Thursday, August 17 this year.
What tasks do I need to complete in advance of move-in?
You’re off to a great start by reading everything on this page!
The following tasks are extremely important to complete before move-in:
- Make your first housing payment. Your second payment is due on August 25.
- Register for classes if you haven’t already.
- Check to be sure you’re enrolled in at least 12 credits (this is the minimum to be eligible for on-campus housing).
What should I pack to bring with me? What shouldn't I bring?
When you’re packing up, be sure to review the What to Bring and What to Leave Home page on our website. In short, remember that your residence hall space is furnished (leave your bed, desk, dresser, and mattress at home), and that residence hall spaces are modest-sized. You’re way more likely to over-pack than under-pack.
Some items are restricted so be sure to review the list.
How many people can I bring with me to campus?
You can bring up to two helpers (parents/guardians, siblings, friends) with you for Move-In Day. Due to limited space in the residence halls, we cannot accommodate large groups.
How many vehicles can I bring with me to campus?
Up to two, including your own.
Can I bring a trailer or recreational vehicle to campus?
We cannot accommodate larger vehicles such as trailers or recreational vehicles.
Needing a large trailer is also usually a sign that you’re packing too much. Remember to review the What to Bring and What to Leave Home page on our website.
What if my assigned move-in time does not work for me?
Depending on parking availability, we may be able to adjust your time. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your current assigned time, requested time, student ID number hall, and room number. We will get back to you within 2-3 business days regarding your request.
If we are able to change your move-in timeslot to your requested time, you will receive a new move-in email with that time and your Housing Portal will be updated as well.
