Early Drop-Off/Move-In

Early Drop-off

Early Drop-Off Weekend: August 16, 2014
Make Move-in easier and avoid the long lines on Move-in Day!

Sign up for Early Drop-Off in July 2014! 

The office of New Student Programs provides new students the opportunity to drop off their belongings prior to orientation (move-in) weekend.  
To sign up, students can register for a one hour time slot on the day of their choice during Early Drop-off day. Students will receive an email confirming their drop-off day/time.  Students then bring all their belongings and drop them off in their assigned residence hall room during their time slot.  Participation in Early Drop-off is highly encouraged, especially for students who are coming from closer distances.  While Early Drop-off is not designed to allow students to unpack and settle in, it still is beneficial since it allows students (and their families) who participate to avoid waiting in move-in day traffic, proceed directly to the move-in day parking/shuttle lots, carry any small last minute items on the bus that takes them to their residence hall, and get a head start on unpacking and settling in during move-in day. 

Early Drop-off will take place August 16. Time slots must be prearranged through the Early Drop-off website and are strictly limited to one hour. The Early Drop-off registration system will open in early July, please check back here during this time period to access the link for sign-ups. For more information, please contact the Office of New Student Programs by phone or email.  

*If you are attending Camp Blue, you should not sign up for Early Drop-off, as you will move in on the morning of August 16 and times have already been reserved for you.

Move-in Day

Move-in Day is Saturday, August 23, 2014 from 7:00 a.m. - noon!

In order to ensure the most efficient Move-in day possible, the New Student Orientation staff has established a drop and go process that enables multiple cars to pull up to the curb at the residence hall, unload and then move their car to an outer parking area so that other cars may unload. All traffic will be routed according to their specific residence hall assignment. Please see the Orientation Guide, for specific directions to each residence hall. Each student will be asked to print a color coded hang tag for your car's rearview mirror based on the hall where the student is assigned to live.
Please check back in early July for a printed color coded hang tag for your car's rearview mirror based on the hall where the student is assigned to live. 
Hang tags and the directional signs are color coded to ensure an easy trip to your residence hall front door. Your New Student Orientation experience begins as soon as you move in!
