Things you need to know:

All students must have a move-in appointment in order to move-in.

You will not be issued a key at any other time than during your move-in appointment.

Move in appointments are 2 hours long, with the exception of Exchange Street Apartments which will have 3-hour appointments.

It is expected that you arrive on time for your appointment, and you finish unloading your vehicle(s) into your room within your appointment time.  At the end of your appointment time, your vehicle(s) must be removed from the unloading zone parking areas so the next group of appointments have a place to park and unload.

You will get move in instructions via email in August based on your specific appointment time and building location.
