Early Move-In


Fee: $150 per day prior to your official Move-In Day

Personal early move-in requests are intended for any on-campus resident who needs to return one or two days before their official Move-in day. These requests should be made due to exceptional circumstances which prevent you from arriving on your scheduled date.

The Office of Residence Life will try to accommodate these requests; however, in some cases, you may need to be housed in temporary assignments if your room assignment is not ready. The earliest you can move in is Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2019.

Please note: Charges for Personal Early Arrival will be placed on the student’s Bursar account after Move-In.


Early Move-in is available in select buildings and space is limited. To make your request, complete the Early Move-in Request Form. There is a fee for moving in before your assigned Move-in Day. The fee is based on the date you request. Please review the following carefully to calculate the total fee you will be charged for your Early Move-in Day. If approved, charges will be placed on your student Bursar account after move-in.
