November 24, 2014 and January 9, 2015 Orientation

Early move-in for January

For those students attending the January 9 session and moving into the campus residence halls and apartments, please visit the Housing and Residential Education website for information and to sign up for early move-in. You cannot move in before January 9 unless you follow this procedure. You may move in after Orientation but this early arrival option is most convenient.

By signing up for early move-in, you can check into your residence hall beginning at 3:00pm on Thursday, January 8 at no extra cost to you. New students may not move in prior to this date and time.

Dining options will be limited as meal plans do not begin until Saturday, January 10. However, the Munchy Mart (convenience store) and Subway will be open with limited hours during the week of January 5-9. See the Dining Services website for more detailed information. Lunch is provided during Orientation for student and family participants.

Parking and Directions
