Campus Move-In 2020

Welcome Back!

We are excited that you plan to live on campus during the fall semester!

On this page, you will find important details about your move-in, including check-in information, directions, health and safety guidelines and where you can locate additional details.

Designated Move-In Times

Move in will look a little different this year due to health concerns related to COVID-19.

We ask that you follow the implemented guidelines to keep everyone safe as we transition into the new semester. This year’s check-in process requires each student to check-in during their designated time slot. This will help enforce required social distancing measures. Students have selected their designated time window and should arrive promptly. If you have not selected a move-in appointment, please log into the housing portal to select one.  

Check in Hours


August 8-9 and 15-16



August 10-14


Check-In Guidelines

When you arrive on campus do not go directly to your Residence Hall, your keys are not there.

You must visit your check-in location first. Information about check-in locations can be found by clicking on your hall below. Check-in locations are unique to each Residence Hall, so make sure you visit the correct location. Upon arrival at your check-in location, you will be asked to present your scan code, which can be found on the Housing Portal or in the email that was sent to students from This scan code is specific to you and should not be shared with other students. Please prepare to present it upon arrival. 

You are also required to present a photo ID before you can receive your keys. Examples of a photo ID include a driver’s license, passport, or a high school student ID.
