West Campus Townhouse Move-In – Driving Directions and Parking Information

On Move-In Day (Friday, August 22, 2014), West Campus Townhouse Residents are asked to enter campus from 11th street at Vachel Lindsay Drive (directions are below). Check-ins for West Campus Townhouses will take place in the West Campus Residence Life Office in Foxglove 12, pink signs will read “West Campus Check-In” and will direct you to the Foxglove Parking lot. Additional signs will direct you to Foxglove 12 via the sidewalks for check-in.

  1. When you arrive at the Foxglove Court Parking Lot, residents should follow the signs to the West Campus Residence Life office in Foxglove 12 to complete the check-in process (retrieve key, sign paperwork, etc).
  2. Once the student has checked in, students can follow additional pink signs to their individual courts to begin moving into their units.
  3. Students are encouraged to bring their own hand carts to assist in unloading as Residence Life has a very limited number available during this busy time.
