On Move-in Day
Plan to arrive at your unloading time. When you arrive to campus, please remain in your vehicle and our team of Move-in Volunteers will guide you to the unloading zone.
Follow the map. Familiarize yourself with our campus map and review the detailed arrival instructions, including check-in location and unloading zones. Follow the directional signs to minimize traffic and prevent delays.
Unload. A team of Move-in Volunteers will be available to help you unload. You'll have access to wheelbarrows and dollies to move your belongings to your room.
Unpack. When you arrive at your room to unpack, please select an available bed, desk, dresser and closet on a first-come, first-serve basis. Furniture is not assigned.
Recycle. Once you've unloaded and unpacked, please take your waste to a designated dumpster or recycling station. There will be collection spots for items like recyclables, cardboard boxes and trash throughout the residence halls.
Complete a Room Inventory Assessment. Please complete your Room Inventory Assessment, available on the Housing Portal, within 72 hours of moving in. Completing this report could help you avoid unnecessary charges at the end of the year. Our staff will reference your Room Inventory Assessment at move-out to inspect your room and bill for damages.
Attend your Community Check-in. Your RA and PAL will lead a brief meeting with other members of your community. You'll learn critical information about the residence halls and review Welcome Week activities.
