Arrival and Move-In  

You will begin moving into your residence hall on Friday, August 23. New international students will arrive on campus earlier for International Student Welcome. Please see the international student page for more information about this program. Upon arrival students should go to their assigned residential hall lobby to receive the key to their room. Valid photo identification is required to complete the residence hall check-in process, and for security purposes the room key can only be released to the assigned student. Once students have obtained their key they can begin moving their personal items in to their room.
