  • 2014 Fall Opening / Early Arrival Requests

    Early Arrival Policy                                                                                                                                                  

    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 in residential accommodations prior to the designated published August Move-In date(s).

    Students who do not meet these criteria and who wish to return early must submit an on-line "Early Arrival Request Form" to Residential and Commuter Life.   Only very unusual requests, with significant justification, will be granted, and a charge of $75.00 per night fee will be assessed.  Requests to return early, based merely on convenience or "wanting to avoid the crowd," will not be permitted.
