Unloading and Parking
When you arrive on campus, head straight to your residence hall. Once you get to your residence hall, there will be teams of student, staff and faculty volunteers waiting to help you and your family members unload your vehicles. While the volunteers are unloading your vehicles, students should proceed to Humbert Hall.
We ask that once your vehicle is unloaded that you move it to long-term parking. Those parking lots designated as long-term parking for Move In Day are the Hanna Street, Hogate, Peeler, Olive Street and Blackstock Stadium lots.
