We hope you are excited for the big day! We will provide some specific information to ensure the best possible experience for all students and their families arriving on Move-In day. It is important that students and families know in which building the student will be residing. We encourage students to log into the Housing Portal prior to arriving to verify their residence hall and room number.
Please click on the link for your assigned building for a detailed instruction sheet to assist you with your move-in experience. We ask that you arrive during your self-selected check-in time to assist us with capacity in the buildings.
