Check-in Day

IMPORTANT Safe Return Move-in Information

Important Message from the Vice President for Student Affairs

Students,

It is very important for you to come to campus during the scheduled times for move-in. 

All students must undergo a health assessment before you are permitted to move into your room or stay on campus. You must come during the scheduled hours. If you are unable to arrive when you are scheduled, please contact Residence Life as soon as possible, as you will NOT be able to be screened or access a campus room after hours. 

It is very important that we commit to caring for self, others, and this place. An example is being on campus when we are able to properly screen students. 

International students will begin arriving on August 10th, fall athletes arrive on August 17th between 10 am and 4 pm.  New students to include transfers and readmits arrive on August 22nd  from 9 am - 3 pm (see the schedule below) and returning students arrive on August 23 and 24th 9 am - 3 pm (see the schedule below).  If you are unable to arrive during these times, you must contact Residence Life at 252- 398- 6237. 

We will do our best to assist students who make arrangements prior to Check-In Days. Also, if you are flying to this area and need transportation to campus, you should contact Public Safety immediately with your flight information (burked@chowan.edu).  Thank you for your cooperation for a successful re-opening of campus!

Happy Learning,

Dr. Streeter


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. 

All NEW students, including freshmen, transfer, or readmit, regardless of your room assignment location, your move-in date is Saturday, August 22nd. New commuting students should check-in at the Hawks Athletic Center on Saturday, August 22nd between 9 am and 3 pm. 

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. 

Early Move-in for International and CDC Identified States 

International and The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended that travelers from many foreign countries self-monitor for 14 days upon entering the United States. In accordance with the CDC and in an effort to be proactive for the safety of our campus community, we are asking our international students to return to campus on August 10th.  If you have visited one of the identified states* in the past 14 days, you may be asked to return early. Given the increase of COVID-19 cases in the United States, we are requiring students from some states to return and self-monitor as well. Students who never left the United States may not have to return to campus on August 10th.

During self-isolation, you are expected to not be in close contact with others. Social distancing is required during this period, wearing a face covering and the other CDC guidelines. A COVID 19 test will be administered during the quarantine period. Meals will be delivered to you in your residence hall. Please remember, we are taking these precautions to keep the Chowan community as safe as possible. The state of North Carolina and Chowan University are requiring face coverings whenever you are in public spaces.

Please confer with Mrs. Ruth Casper (wommar@chowan.edu) for any I-20 concerns.

Please complete this form prior to returning to campus. This must be done before you are permitted to stay on campus. 

 *We are using the CDC guidelines to determine which states may return early.

Commuting Students 

New commuting students should check-in at the Hawks Athletic Center on Saturday, August 22nd between 9 am and 3 pm. 

Returning commuting students should check their email for validation instructions (from validate@chowan.edu).
