We can’t wait for you to come back to campus and re-energize our home!

  • If you're living in a residence hall, check in with the Residential Life staff in your hall's lobby upon arrival.
  • If you are living in a cottage or apartment, you will receive an e-mail in early August with specific instructions on your check in process.
  • If you need to request to arrive on campus earlier than Sunday, please fill out a request through EMS. If your reason is not college-related (e.g., on-campus job, athletics), there is a $75 per day fee to move in early.
