Classes begin

Students are encouraged to make arrangements to move in during designated times.  If you are not able to do so, you may apply for early arrival.  The fee for early arrival is $30 per night and is non-refundable.

  • First-year students are strongly discouraged from arriving early, as the Fall Orientation program does not begin until Wednesday, August 23.  Prior to this day there will be no planned activities, limited food service options, and no move-in crew to assist you.
  • If you are a member of a student group approved to arrive early and your name has been submitted by the adviser/coach, you should not complete the Early Arrival Registration form.  If you have questions, please contact your adviser/coach.
  • The cost for early arrival is $30 per night. When completing the form, please select the night you will arrive on campus. Your bill will include the total number of nights from check in through August 23 (First Year) or August 26 (Returner).  Please note:  Picking up your keys to your room is considered moving into your room, whether you stay in the room or just move items into the room.  Therefore, you will be charged the appropriate amount based on the day you receive the key(s) to your room/suite.  The cost for moving in can be found following the date you have chosen to arrive on the Early Arrival Request Form.
  • Please note:  Early arrivals will not be permitted on Tuesday, August 22 or Wednesday, August 23 in order to accommodate First Year move-in. Continuing student move-in begins on Saturday, August 26 at 10 AM.
