When can we begin moving belongings into the building and how much time do we have to move my student into their rooms?
Move in begins at 9:00 AM on Sunday, September 17th and lasts until 3:00 PM that afternoon. To prevent long lines and ease with traffic on campus, each student is given a check in appointment time of 9:00am, 10:00am or 11:00am – they can start moving in at that time. Welcome Week activities will begin at 4:00 PM.


Can I help my student move in?
Yes! We encourage you to come and help your student move into their new building. We have a Family Orientation planned for all attending parents, family members, and guests as well.


Can I stay with my student during Welcome Week events?
We unfortunately do not allow parents and families to participate in Welcome Week along with their students.


Where can I go to get more information about University Housing?
There will be two Family Orientation sessions offered on move-in day to answer any questions you may have about University Housing. You may attend one session located in the residential halls or the residential suites - each session offers the same information. There will be key speakers discussing safety, policy, food, and more. Afterwards there will be a Q&A session. If you have more questions, please feel free to visit the University Housing website or the Welcome Week website.


Is food provided during move in?
No, students will not be fed until later that night at Opening Ceremonies around 5:00 PM, so be sure that your student has snacks or eats during move in.
