Move In Day

Due to the high volume of new incoming students whose move-in date is set for July 15th, the Department of Housing and Residence Life will be sponsoring a major move-in event on Saturday, July 19th from 8:00am– 3:00pm for all new incoming residents. For these move-in events all students should report to their respective building to check-in, pick up their key, and await instructions from staff. Areas will be designated for unloading near each building and staff will be available for assistance and to ask questions.

Residents are advised to visit the front desk of the building which they are planning to move into initially. Temporary loading zone permits can be reserved at the front desk on an hourly basis to assist with unloading. Move in packets can also be retrieved at the applicable front desk. During heavy move-in dates, apartments keys  will be attached to move-in packets.  New residents of the Barringer residence hall who are moving on campus on a light move in day,  may be required to visit the Orlowitz Residence to retrieve the apartment key. The Barringer front desk clerk is available to advise each resident as to whether this is required. Please bring a photo ID for move in day.

Loading zone parking spaces, carts, and elevators are available for use on a first come basis, and may not be reserved.

Please review the campus map to identify building location.
