Information for New Students
Wednesday, August 21, 2013: New Student Move-in
In order to accommodate the new students and families, we have developed a check-in and move-in system with Threshold that will eliminate congestion and confusion as much as possible. You must check-in at your designated residence hall during the times listed below, but you can continue to move your belongings in throughout the day.
Your student ID card is your key; you must check-in at the Threshold Welcome Tent and Student Administrative Services Check-In to get this ID before you head to your assigned campus housing.
- 8:00 to 10:00 am: Anderson, Ohlson, Park North residents move in
- 10:00 am to Noon: Burgh, Sohlberg, and Sawyer Court residents move in
Please see the Threshold schedule for additional events and programs during orientation.
- If you are an international student coming on a non-immigrant visa, an athlete, or a person who needs to arrive early to work on campus, please check with your coach or advisor for your move-in schedule.
- We are unable to accommodate early arrivals or dropping off of belongings, so please make your travel plans accordingly.
