A photo ID is required to complete the check in process.

Early Arrivals Check-In

Some groups of students arrive on campus early (i.e. fall athletes, marching band, etc).  Early arrival groups will learn of their move in date and time from their group leader (i.e. coach, director, etc).  All early arrival check-in processes will take place in the Atrium of Hamilton-Williams Campus Center.

Please review this map to help you locate where the check-in process will occur for all Early Arrival groups (athletes, marching band, etc), and the main student move-in process that takes place August 18-20.

Loft Kit Requests

The University has kits that make it possible for students to either bunk two beds together or to loft a single bed high enough to place something like a futon underneath it.  Some students like using these because it can create additional storage space in the room.  Other students like to keep their beds on the bed ends already in the room, which allows them to raise or lower their bed frame several feet off the ground (high enough to place a dresser underneath it) without the use of a kit.  We encourage you to discuss how you will set your room up with your roommate(s) ahead of requesting a loft/bunk kit.  There is a $100 rental fee to use loft kits, which includes the proper installation of the loft and it's removal when you move out.  The rental fee will be applied to your university bill.  Students who request a loft by August 2 will have a loft installed in their room prior to August 15.  Any requests on August 3 or later will get a loft, but their loft may be installed shortly after August 15. This rental fee is non-refundable once a loft has been set up for you in your room.  

If you would like to request a loft kit or a bunk kit, please complete the Fall 2024 Loft & Bunk Kit Request form by August 2, 2024.
