0 0. Before You Start 0

Your assignment e-mail contains important information about Move-in Day including your check-in time, your hall, and room assignment. Before you make the journey to campus be sure to:

Pack light. Barnhart, Carson, Living-Learning Center (LLC), Global Scholars Hall, and Riley are the only halls with elevators (which get really busy during move in). Using the stairs may speed up your move-in process. It may also be helpful to bring a handtruck or dolly.

Know your check-in time. You are assigned a specific time to check in, by zip code. Check your assignment e-mail for your staggered check-in time and instructions. Checking in during your assigned time should reduce wait time. We appreciate your cooperation in following these guidelines as we work to ease heavy traffic and congestion during check in.


Remember to leave behind alcohol, illegal drugs, drug and alcohol paraphernalia, weapons, pets (except fish), hot plates, microwaves, incense and candles (including wickless), extension cords, halogen lamps, valuables, and large amounts of cash.
