Preparing for your arrival to campus
In late summer, an email will be sent to incoming residents about move in. Residence Halls will officially open on Thursday, August 22 with early move-in dates for specially approved groups such at Orientation.
Selecting your arrival time
All residents must schedule a move-in appointment for their arrival. This ensures a smooth and positive move-in experience for all, and reduces traffic congestion on campus.
Beginning early August, log back into the housing portal to select your arrival time from one of the designated move-in dates.
What to expect at your arrival time
Each residence hall has a designated unloading zone that can accommodate a certain number of vehicles at a time. This corresponds with the number of available move-in appointments offered at each arrival time. Move-in appointments are 20 minutes in length, allowing you time to check in and unload your belongings at your residence hall before moving your vehicle to one of the designated parking areas.
Be sure to print your move-in appointment confirmation and place on your dashboard so it is visible through your windshield. If you are not arriving in a personal vehicle, bring the printed confirmation with you.
Student volunteers known as “Welcome Jacks” will be onsite to assist you with unloading and bringing your belongings to your room at designated peak times noted on the move-in calendar. If you would like Welcome Jack assistance, select an arrival time within the timeframes noted above.
You will need your JacksCard to check into your residence hall at your scheduled move-in appointment.
If you do not yet have a JacksCard, please arrange to stop first at the JacksCard office to obtain your card prior to your move-in appointment. Make sure you have submitted your photo online prior to arriving.
