Check-in for first-year residence hall students for the Fall 2018 semester will be Sunday, August 12 starting at 9:00am.  All first year students must be checked in by 3:00pm Early check-in is not available.  Only first year students will be permitted to check-in on August 12.

We suggest bringing several people with you to assist with move in.  When you arrive on campus, please follow the directions of the staff and park in the areas in which you are directed.  Once parked, you will be permitted a short time (approximately 30 minutes) to unload your vehicle and then move to a more permanent parking spot.  We ask everyone to unload quickly and move their vehicle to assist with the flow of traffic.

Once parked at the specified unloading area, students should go to the Davis Conference Center to pick up their keys and to check in while the vehicle is being unloaded by the rest of their party.  At this location, you will officially check in, receive your keys, and fill out any remaining paperwork that might be necessary.  Residents of Catamount Place and University Place will have their student ID card activated for room access.  

Check-in times are between the hours of 9:00am and 3:00pm. If you arrive after 3:00pm, please proceed to the University Place Front desk to sign in. 

If you have a moving cart or dolly, please bring it with you on move in day to help with transporting your belongings to your room. We have a very limited number of carts available to assist students moving into University Place, but please do not plan on one being available at the time of your arrival.
