New Student Move-In Route Map

Please arrive at the appropriate time for your building. You will not be allowed to move-in earlier than your scheduled time.  All students and guests will be screened in line. Once vaccination card or negative test results are verified you will receive wrist bands that will need to be worn throughout the day. You will then move to an unloading area where crews will be on hand to help unload and move your items to your room. Students will retrieve keys and guests will remain with the vehicle. As soon as the vehicle(s) are unloaded you will be asked to move your car(s) to an open parking lot and then return to unpack.  No one will be allowed into the buildings without a wristband.  Please do not bring more than 2 vehicles with you.  There is limited space in each dorm room so please keep that in mind when packing.

All guests will be asked to leave once the move-in time for each building has expired.  New Student Orientation begins the evening of August 20 and runs through Monday, August 23. This is a student only event.
