Fall Move In: Move-in times are staggered throughout the day to ensure a smooth check-in process with minimal wait times. When you arrive to campus at your selected time, you’ll have half an hour to check in, and another hour to unload your vehicle(s) at your residence hall entrance. Once your belongings are unloaded and brought up to your room, you will relocate your vehicle(s) to the designated parking areas, and return to your hall to continue unpacking.
