You are invited to begin moving in at 8 a.m, and we expect all of you to have arrived on campus no later than 11 a.m.

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 who live in Bishop Roberts Hall, Hogate Hall, Humbert Hall and Longden Hall should proceed to Humbert Hall in South Quad to check in. Students who live in Lucy Rowland Hall should proceed directly to the lobby of Lucy Rowland Hall in Ubben Quad.

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 Friday are the Hanna Street, Hogate, Peeler, Olive Street and Blackstock Stadium lots.
