Returning Student Move-In Experience


If you so choose, all upperclassmen facilites have the ability to self move-in on Thursday, August 24, 2017 and Friday, August 25, 2017. Take advantage of this opportunity to beat the lines and move-in at your own pace if you would like from 8am-5pm each day. You will check in directly at your residential facility.

Residential students returning to campus can move in on Saturday, August 26. All students can move in between 9am and 1pm. The Returning Student Move-In Experience will be much like the First-Year Move-In Experience. Here's a breakdown of move in by residence hall:
