Fall Check-In:

Upon your arrival on campus, first go through check-in and obtain your room assignment and door access at the Housing Check-In Tent or Housing Office (if arrangements were made to arrive early or after check-in schedule). Please remember to bring a picture ID to check-in, i.e. driver's license. 

We encourage students to move in only essentials and bring bigger items (i.e. furniture) after move-in, with the consent of the roommates for space allocations. Please bring others to help you and feel free to bring hand carts for hauling heavy items (a limited number of hand carts are provided by the University).
