To help reduce the density of people utilizing hall entrances and elevators at any one time, we will be offering an alternative move-in process for fall.
After room assignments are sent out in mid-July, students will receive an email with directions to schedule an appointment to bring their belongings to campus. Appointments will be available starting in early August. During their scheduled appointment time, students will receive their room key and may bring their items and place them into their assigned rooms. We are unable to house students until either August 19 (Premium Plan) or August 20 (Standard Plan). Appointment slots will be scheduled by residence hall and will be coordinated to reduce the volume of people using common spaces at any given time. Anyone entering a residence hall will be asked to wear a face mask as they move belongings into their rooms. We ask all students to limit the number of personal belongings they bring to campus this year. It is easier for students to keep their rooms cleaned and disinfected if there is less clutter.
We recognize that this approach is not feasible for each and every student due to distance, but the more individuals who take advantage of the appointment system, the less congestion and risk we will have during the days when students come back to campus to begin residency. If a student is unable to utilize the appointment system, they may move in on the appropriate contract date or on August 21, 22, or 23.
Students with a Premium Plan Contract may begin residency on August 19, while students with a Standard Plan Contract may return to campus on August 20 and stay in their residence hall room.
