What happens on move-in day?

All students (incoming first-years, transfer students and returning upperclass students) should check-in outside of Old Chapel in the Library Lane circle in the 1-hour window selected on your move-in day. There will be a tent there where you will pick up your room keys and any other check-in materials. From there, you will proceed to your residence hall to unload your belongings.

You may bring family members or friends to assist you with your move. It is preferred that any guests who are assisting you are vaccinated. If guests are unvaccinated, we ask that they wear masks and practice social distancing when indoors. If you or any guest who is assisting you are not feeling well, have been exposed to a positive Covid-19 individual or have tested positive for Covid-19 immediately prior to the move-in date, we ask you to stay home and/or arrive at a later date.
