Moving to Campus General Information

When is General Move-in for New Students (Non-Fall Athletes)? 

General Move-in Day for New students takes place on Saturday, September 2. 

Students will be assigned a 60-minute check-in time slot for arrival that day. We ask that students arrive during that 60-minute time slot for check-in to help with traffic flow. After you have checked in, you will have as much time as needed to move in. These assignments will be communicated out to students in early July. Once you have received your assigned move-in check-in time slot, please contact our admissions office if you have concerns or would like to inquiry about changing your time.
