How to Prepare for Move-in

  • If you will be living on campus for the first time, make sure to pack essentials. Learn what to bring.
  • Move-in day assistance: You are allowed to bring moving helpers with you. A limited supply of moving carts will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have your own hand cart/dolly, feel free to bring it along.
  • Parking: You or your helper may park at the unloading zone in front of the residence hall to unpack your belongings. It is strongly encouraged that someone remain present with the vehicle while unloading.
