Students who can move in on Wednesday will be sent a link in early August to sign up for a move-in time between 9AM and 2PM. Students arriving Thursday or later do not need to sign up for a move-in time.

Arriving Early or Arriving Late

If you are planning to arrive before Wednesday, August 23, please sign up for interim housing at Students will pay a small per-night fee for interim housing.

If you are planning to arrive after Monday, August 28, please contact the Housing Office prior to August 24 so that your late arrival will not be mistaken for a change in your housing plans.
