Move-In Day

  • Check-In and Move-In Information - Fall 2015

    Move-In Day

    Move-In is an exciting time! We ask families and students to read over this information carefully, as there will be information about where to park, what time to arrive and where you will check in. Please check back frequently for updates, and more details about the actual day of move in.

    Once on campus you will be greeted by Community Advisors, Resident Directors and many other staff members. A move-in crew, made up of student volunteers, will be available to assist you with getting your belongings into your residence hall room. The College does provide a number of moving bins to help families transport belongings.

    We do not allow students to arrive prior to move-in day, unless they have received notification that they are part of a preapproved College group (e.g., soccer team or move-in crew). If you are a member of one of these early arrival groups, you will receive communication from the person in charge of the group about your move-in date and time.
