Getting to Campus

When You Arrive

Checking In

  • All students checking into their units will report to the Housing Commons (HCOM – #20 on the campus map) to check-in and receive their keys. All students must present their i-Card and/or photo identification when checking in. Students will then be directed to their Summer Assignment where they will be able to begin unloading.
    • Moving Carts will be provided during check-in, however, there will be not volunteers to help students unload their vehicles. There are limited Moving Carts available and are distributed on a first come first serve basis.
  • Room Condition Inventories & Keys – At check-in, students will receive a Room Inventory and Keys for their spaces.
    • The Room Condition Inventory is a standardized form that denotes the current state of the room upon inspection by the Resident Assistant. All students are highly encouraged to review the information and inform their Resident Director of any omissions or alterations within 48 hours of check-in. After the 48 hour period residents may be held responsible for any discrepancies during check-out. When checking in, students will sign and receive a copy of their Room Inventory.
    • In the Apartments and Townhouses, residents will receive a front door key, bedroom key and mailbox key.
    • Residents are responsible for their keys at all times, and may be asked to produce these keys by Residence Life Staff at any time.
