On fall First-year move in day and Upper Class student move in day, Residence Life staff and students from various groups on campus will be present to assist you as you move your belongings on to campus. As move in day is one with a great deal of pedestrian and vehicular traffic, we ask that you please be patient throughout the process.
Please arrive with both a driver and someone who is able to unload a vehicle into your new space (we will help) because parking is limited and to be efficient, we ask that vehicles not stay parked near entrances after being emptied of belongings.
We’re so excited to have you on campus!
