Move In Information

Fall 2017 Move-In Schedule

Friday, September 1st 9am-3pm (Dog Haul)

Saturday, September 2nd 9am-11am

Sunday, September 3rd 1-4pm

Any students checking in after these dates and times must notify our office.  Food Service facilities will open for dinner at 4pm on Tuesday, September 5th.  

Students assigned to a residence hall will check in at the front desk of their assigned hall, except for Dudley Hall residents, who will check in at Davison Hall room 109.  Students assigned to University Park (Caruthers, Sutton, Neilson, Kidd, or Thatcher commons) and Park Place (Hutcheson, McFarland, or Jenkins commons) will check in at the Lambright Sports Center.  Legacy Park (Harper and Pearce apartments) will check in at Nethken Hall.  These locations are ONLY for the Dog Haul date.  All other dates will have the following check in locations:  University Park, Park Place, and Legacy Park residents will check in at Wyly Tower in the BARC office while all residence hall residents will check in at the front desk of their assigned hall.  During the check-in you will complete all necessary paperwork and be issued keys for your room.  Your student ID card will give you entry access to your assigned residence hall and will begin working the day of move in.  Once you are checked in and have been issued a room key, you may begin moving into the room.

You’ve probably noticed all the construction on campus. As a result, there has been a disruption to some of the parking near some of our residence halls. Usually, during the main move-in times (Friday and Saturday), the parking lots nearest the residence halls are quickly filled leaving little room for students to unload belongings. In most cases, we see students and family members having to walk long distances carrying belongings. We are going to try something a little different during this move-in process.

This will affect those students residing in Graham, Aswell, Adams, Dudley and Harper residence halls.

Envision the passenger drop-off for an airport. We will secure some of the parking lot that is closest to the building for an unloading area:

The area will be roped off, there will be signs and there will hopefully (at least during Dog Haul Friday) be many SGA or Res Life people in the parking lot(s) to assist you.
