Early Arrival Information

Only students who are participating in university-sponsored opening roles/activities or required employment AND who have been invited to return early by the sponsoring university office are permitted to be on campus in residence halls prior to the August Move-In.

Students who do not meet these criteria and who wish to return early must submit the online early arrival request form, which will be available to students in the student housing gateway.   Only very unusual requests with significant justification will be granted, and a charge of $75.00 per night will apply.  Requests to return early based merely on convenience or "wanting to avoid the crowd" will not be permitted.

Make sure to enable pop-ups to access the early arrival request form in the student housing gateway.

Note: All early arrival requests must be received by Friday, August 14.


Late Arrival Information

If personal obligations prevent you from arriving on campus at your designated time, notify the Residential and Commuter Life Office in writing (email: housing@longwood.edu) of your planned arrival date/time.  This information will be shared with the respective Residence Education Coordinators. 

Summer School

2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. on the Sunday before the first day of classes at the Front Desk of Longwood Landings (Southeast Building). An assignment confirmation and your move-in instructions will be e-mailed, via your Longwood address, prior to your campus arrival. Other questions can be directed to housing@longwood.edu.
