Important Information:

  • This is the busiest move-in day. It is very important that all students and families follow the move-in paket to ensure the smoothest move-in day possible for everyone.
  • We will have a large number of volunteers here to help you. Students should try to limit the number of individuals they bring with them to assist with move-in.
  • Somone needs to be with your vehicle at all times while unloading.
  • You will have 15-minutes to unload and then you must move your vehicle to the designated Move-in Long-term Parking Lot. 
  • Trollies will be running on Thursday from the long-term parking lots to the residence halls. There will still be a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for any weather.
