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

You must visit the Alumni Coliseum check-in location first. Do NOT go directly to your hall first.  Upon arriving at the Coliseum, 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.
