Fall Semester Early Arrivals
Students wishing to come to campus early in August will need to obtain approval through the Early Arrival process. Due to scheduled maintenance and turnover on campus, we will do our best to have Early Arrivals move into their Fall assignments, however students may be housed in temporary locations based on the readiness of the residence halls. Please note that there is a campus-wide steam shutdown that affects hot water in all residence halls (excluding Eagle Landing and UMW Apartments) through the first week of August.
Early Arrival Options:
- Sponsored Group
- Individual Request (returning students only)
Students sponsored by a University department with a legitimate need to arrive early for a University-sponsored program are not charged for housing; sponsors must submit a request via email using the Early Arrival Spreadsheet template to our Coordinator of Housing Operations.
The deadline to sponsor early arrivals is two weeks prior to the anticipated arrival.
To complete the spreadsheet, each sponsor will need to know the information below for each residential student arriving early to campus.
- Student’s Banner ID number
- Student’s full legal name
- Student’s arrival date (the date getting key and settling-in)
- Student’s Assigned Residence Hall
- Sponsor’s name, e-mail address, office phone number, and emergency contact phone number
Individual Requests (Upperclassmen only)
Those upper-class students without a University sponsor may request to arrive early (no earlier than August 15) by submitting an Individual Early Arrival Request Form via the Housing portal no later than Monday, August 1st at 11:50 p.m.; there is a $30 per day fee for those approved, and without the dining plan in effect, any meals must be purchased by the student as needed. Fall meal plans start with dinner on Sunday, August 21st. Approval will be made based on individual need and readiness of the residence halls to receive students.
Please note: approval of Early Arrivals is not guaranteed.
The key pick-up location for all returning students arriving early is Eagle Landing Front Desk between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.
