Moving Into On-Campus Apartments

Whether you are a new or returning student, moving in can be both fun and exhausting. We’ve worked with our students and staff to make the process more efficient. We offer suggestions on what to bring and what to leave at home, preparations you might need to make, move-in times, dining hours and more. See the links on the left for apartments move-in information including the packing list and move-in instructions.
