Campus Accommodation for Early Arrivals

July 19, 2016

Isn’t it hard to believe we’ve already hit the mid-summer mark?  I hope the summer  has provided you with some opportunities for rest and relaxation.

As we all continue our preparations for Fall semester, Campus Living would like to remind you of the dates that new and continuing students can move into their rooms on campus:

  • New students are expected to arrive for New Student Orientation on Wednesday, August 24 at 8 a.m. and will begin moving into their rooms at that time.  (Exceptions include student athletes involved in pre-season conditioning, new international students and TCKs and those students who are participating in New Student Trips prior to NSO.  These students are already cleared for early arrival.)
  • The residence halls and campus apartments open for continuing students on Sunday, August 28 at 9 a.m.

If you have need for your student worker to return early or you are requiring students to return to participate in special co-curricular activities prior to the dates listed above, it is important that you make us aware of those needs by Monday, August 1, 2016.  Of course, this is only necessary if the student needs to move into their room on campus. Campus Living will be happy to cover the cost of the room, however, given current budget constraints, it will be your responsibility to cover the cost of meals for your students. 

For new students, that cost would extend from their arrival date until NSO begins on August 24. For continuing students, the cost must also include the period between August 24 and 28 when the board program commences. You should anticipate $19.50/person per day for food in Fields Dining Room.

Please send the following information to by Monday, August 1

  • ID#
  • Student Name
  • Date of Arrival
  • Reason for Early Return/Arrival and your Departmental Budget Number

Once we know who is arriving early, we will be able to ensure that access to student rooms is as efficient as possible. Please help us remind early arriving students that if they have items in our storage rooms, access to their belongings will be very limited while our Resident Advisors and professional staff are in training (beginning August 12) and preparing the halls for opening. Likewise, students who have permission to move-in early are not allowed to have overnight guests nor are they permitted to allow their roommates access to the room.

Thanks in advance for your help and cooperation.  Please call Campus Living at ext. 7123 if you have any questions.
