    Upperclassmen Move-in will be Saturday and Sunday, August 26-27, 2017, from 1:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.


    Once you receive confirmation of your housing assignment, you also will receive information about the dates and times that you should check in. Resident assistants (RAs) will be available during these times in the lounge of your residence hall to show you to your room, fill out any necessary paperwork and provide you with your keys or room access via a swipe card.

    If you cannot check in during the dates and times stipulated, you must complete an early move-in request through eCampus Housing Self-Service, under the Applications menu. All applications are due two weeks prior to the start of the term.
