When You Arrive on Campus for Move-In
Nearly 150 students, staff, and faculty members will assist new families during Move-In. The extra muscle will help you get into your residence hall a lot more quickly. Be sure to label your belongings with your name, residence hall, and room number so that you can be extra-sure your belongings get to the right place.
Here’s how Move-In works:
- Dropping off your belongings is the first step. Be prepared to move quickly through a drop-off line. Staff from Parking Management and University Police will have an established traffic flow for each residential area of campus. You will be directed to a traffic line and then instructed on when and where to unload your belongings. Once you’ve unloaded your vehicle, it will need to be parked in a different location.
- After drop-off, you’ll check into your residence hall. Residence Life staff will be ready to greet you on the first floor of your residence hall. During check-in, you’ll receive your room key/card access.
- After you’ve checked into your residence hall, then you need to check into Golden Eagle Welcome Week (GEWW). GEWW is a required event for incoming freshmen. New transfer students are invited to participate in GEWW but not required to.
- Each floor in every residence hall is assigned a resident assistant (RA). Your RA will have a mandatory floor meeting. The time and location of this meeting will be posted on your floor.
- Before you go to bed that day, make sure that your vehicle is parked in a residential zone. Remember that you can be ticketed or towed if you park outside of a residential zone.
