First Year & Incoming Transfer Students

It’s getting closer! New students will be receiving their housing assignments and roommate information in early August, but we encourage you to review the many details regarding Fall 2022 Move In and New Student Welcome Weekend below.

New students move in day is scheduled for Friday August 26th. Students will arrive and check in between 9am – 12pm. Welcome Weekend will then begin with a BBQ for students and their family & friends!

Before Arriving To Campus

Contact Your Roommates

Roommates who connect with one another before coming to campus have more positive living experiences and build stronger relationships. You can also work out logistics such as who will bring larger items like the television, refrigerator.

Label Your Belongings

Be sure to know your housing assignment. We recommend labeling all of your items with your name and room number.

Check To Be Sure Pre-arrival Documents Are Submitted

Make sure that all important forms (health forms, proof of Covid-19 vaccination, etc) have been submitted. This will ensure a smooth arrival and move in process.
