Move-in Day is an exciting experience for many college students, and we want to make sure that yours is stress-free. In order to get the most out of your move-in day, make sure you have completed all of the following items:
Move-in Day is part of our Welcome Weekend experience for incoming freshman. Most of the information for Welcome Weekend will be mailed to you or explained during your orientation experience. If you still have questions, feel free to contact our office or the Office of Retention.
You may also consider bringing the following items:
Unfortunately, there are some items which violate our health and safety standards and cannot be brought. This list is not comprehensive and can be reviewed in more detail in our Residence Life Guide to Success. Some of our most common items are:
During Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer Breaks, all residence halls (excluding those students under the Extended Terms and Conditions) temporarily close down. While residents are welcome to leave items in their rooms during Fall, Winter, and Spring Breaks, we do not provide housing services during these times.
In order to make each closing a seamless transition, we ask that all residents plan to leave for break as early as possible during the week before closing. Before each closing, our Resident Assistants will provide specific closing instructions to make sure that your room remains clean and secure. Additionally, students are asked to notify our staff when they are exiting our halls for closing.
As students finish their finals, we will be closing the buildings down for the longer breaks. As such, we ask that students be prepared to sign out of their room two hours after their final on-campus obligation. Similar to Fall and Spring Closings, we have several steps we ask each student takes to ensure that our building is properly prepared for the break.
