Directions to Campus:

To facilitate the flow of traffic for Move-In Days we have developed these motor vehicle directions to the University unloading / parking facilities.  Depending on your assigned residence hall and where you are directed to park, you will either unload your motor vehicle at the parking location, or be asked to relocate the vehicle to a parking location after the vehicle has been unloaded. In the event that you are asked to relocate your vehicle to a University  parking facility, you will be provided with the directions to that facility upon your arrival. Please follow these directions when approaching the University.

Summer II to Fall 2015 MOVE IN/OUT PROCEDURE

Students who are moving off campus must contact their current Residence Director to secure a move out date and time. Failure to check out by the pre-established deadline may result in lost/discarded property, fines and/or judicial action.

Students must complete the following prior to being checked out of their bedspace by a member of the Housing & Residential Life staff:

  • Remove all belongings
  • Throw away all trash/food
  • Clean your bedspace

Once everything has been removed from their room, the student must check out of their space with a member of Housing & Residential Life on the date previously coordinated with their Residence Director. A Resident Assistant will then check the condition of their bedroom and apartment (if applicable) noting any damage. In keyed buildings, the RA will take the students keys and lock the bedroom.

*Specific information and instructions for move-ins (including dates and times) will be mailed to students and families each term. All dates are subject to change.

** It is recommended that students on co-op with a non-continuous contract should start their off-campus leases on August 1st.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT MOVE-OUT DATES: Any student with a continuous contract to remain on campus for the following term will NOT follow these move out dates if they are scheduled to move to a new room. Students that fall into this category should NOT make travel plans to leave campus until they confirm their move-in date with their future Residence Director. This information is not available until the end of each term.

Summer II officially ends on August 25th. If you will be living on campus for the Fall Semester, you must remain in your Summer II room until your Fall space is available. You cannot leave your belongings in your room and leave for the intersession. You are required to move to your fall space before leaving campus for the break.

If you are NOT remaining on campus for the Fall, you will be required to move out (same as last day of finals). Please be aware that housing until September 1 is not available, therefore, you are encouraged to sign leases that begin on August 1. If you move out of Summer II housing on August 1, you will be prorated for the weeks you do not live on campus.
