Early Move-In Request Form

Since the residence halls will not be prepared to open until September 6, 2016 for new students and September 10, 2016 for returning students, we are only able to grant early move-in requests that are of an unusual or compelling nature.  For these unusual exceptions, the earliest possible arrival date is August 26, 2016.

Note: Fall sport athletes, RLAs, RLMs, CORE leaders and Welcome Week staff do not need to obtain special permission.

Below you will find some common early move-in requests that will not be approved.

  • "My parents are out of town during that time period and are unable to help me move-in."
  • "I want to be able to get settled and moved into my room earlier."
  • "We have made vacation plans for that time period."
  • "We can only get the vehicle for that day."
  • "It would be much more convenient to move in earlier."
  • "One of my friends did it last year."
  • "My parents have to work that day."
  • "We just want to move my things into the room. I will not be staying."
  • "My roommate will already be on campus so I would like to move in early also."

Please note for those rare early arrival exceptions: There is an early arrival housing fee of $25 per day for those whose request for early arrival has been granted. If your requested date is granted, a calculation will be made for the approved housing time period and the amount will be applied to your student account.  Please note this fee is for housing only—meal plans begin on September 6 for new students and September 10 for returning students.

Please note early arrival can start August 26 or later. Any earlier requests for arrival will be considered as a summer housing request and a student must meet the requirements for summer housing to arrive on campus prior to August 26.
