Move-In Weekend

We are looking forward to your arrival on campus during move-in weekend!

Student volunteers will be at the entrances of campus to direct you to your appropriate parking lot. To make the move-in process convenient for you, staff and students will be available to assist in unloading your belongings and moving them to your room for you. Elevators will not be available for public use during move-in weekend.

To ensure that none of your belongings are misplaced, we ask that you prominently display your name, residence hall, and room number on ALL boxes, bags, and/or suitcases prior to your arrival. The College will make every effort to ensure that your belongings arrive in your room. However, the College will not accept liability for any lost or damaged personal belongings. Use your discretion when giving any items of high or personal value to our staff and students.

We encourage you to bring only the items that are most necessary for the first few weeks of school. Family Weekend 2021 is currently scheduled for September 24 through September 26, and this is a good time to have additional items brought to you by your family. Please see the list of items we suggest you purchase locally after you arrive on campus. We also encourage you to review the list of items not permitted in the residence halls.

As a reminder, students must be COVID-19 cleared (proof of vaccination or an approved exemption) in order to participate in the early drop-off opportunity. There will be no exceptions. In accordance with recent College policy, all students and guests will also be required to wear a mask while indoors during the drop-off opportunity and during move-in weekend.

We hope you are as excited as we are about the start of the school year, and we look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
