As of July 16, the First Year student move in date has been finalized.  New Student Move-In Day is Saturday, August 22.
Each student will receive an email from Residence Life no later than Friday, July 31 with their assigned individual time slot on their designated Move-In Day, along with instructions for where to report on campus and details related to parking, testing, and residence hall access. 

Students may be accompanied by one family member for move-in, but that person may not enter the residence halls or other campus buildings. We urge students to pack very lightly for the semester and bring only essential items and clothing they can carry to their room on their own without assistance. If you are planning on bringing a mini-fridge to campus, you may want to consider our campus partner providing mini-fridge rentals to reduce the number of heavy items you will need to carry, especially because our first-year residence halls do not have elevators available. We do not recommend bringing additional furniture.

August 25 -- FYP classes meet for the first day in their classroom

August 26 -- All other fall classes begin
