New Student Move-In Times Available

To minimize the wait time in the car line, the Office of Residence Life and Housing encourages move-in during three waves – 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., 10 a.m. to noon, and noon to 2 p.m. These encouraged time frames will allow for better management of traffic around campus and will expedite the move-in process as we welcome our 1,400+ newest Demon Deacons.

Move-in times are assigned by building and floor to ensure students have access to move into their community with ease.
