Check-in Day

IMPORTANT Safe Return Move-in Information

The timeline for move-in of residents will be expanded over a three day period and staggered for students depending upon where their on-campus space is located. Staggered move-in will support physical distancing guidelines and limit the density on floors and in buildings. Please follow all University and CDC safe practice guidelines. 

Students will have a reasonable block of time to move in (for example, traditional residence halls will have 2 hours and Whites Crossing will have 3 hours) and there will be a limit on the number of moving helpers a student may have with them during their move-in time. Only 1 helper is recommended. Students are encouraged to only bring their bare essentials and necessities.
