Early Arrival Requests

We strongly encourage all students to arrive in their designated time windows. Early arrivals will only be permitted in situations where extenuating circumstances are present. Any approved early arrivals will be billed $100/night for each night prior to the designated move-in date. Students who feel they have extenuating circumstances warranting an early arrival should complete the early arrival request form in the housing portal (form will be available on August 6, 2021).

** Please note, submission of the early arrival form does NOT automatically guarantee an approval for early arrival. Students will be notified via email if their early arrival is approved.
