Move-In Process

Step 1: Check-in! (the fun part)

  • Park your car in an available lot!
  • Check-in at the Freede Wellness Center
  • Beware of getting in the drop-off line of your residence hall before checking in, you will have to start all over if you haven't stopped by the Freede Wellness Center first.

Step 2: Wait... (the slow part)

  • Drive your vehicle to the entry of your residence hall.
  • Relax in line! It can sometimes take a while, but we promise we will get you moved in as quickly as possible.

Step 3: Moving-In! (the last part)

  • Drivers stay in the car and passengers & volunteers will unload the vehicle in no time!
  • Drivers go park the car while passengers & volunteers take belongings up to the room.


Q: What if we aren't unpacked by the end of our check-in time?

A: It's OK! We would like you to check-in at the Freede Wellness Center at that time, but we don't expect you to be fully unpacked by then.

Q: Will I get lost?

A: Nope! We have hundreds of volunteers at move-in to help direct you, assist with moving your things, shuttle you in golf carts, and police to direct traffic. Our campus is so excited to welcome you and your family!

Q: What is the most important thing to remember?

A: RELAX! This is your first day of college, don't spend it worrying about move-in! Remember, if you forgot something, there is a store down the street and a mailroom on campus. If you don't have your room decorated yet, you have an entire year to finish it!

ENJOY this exciting first day!
