WHAT TO EXPECT AT CHECK-IN

Upperclass Students

Check-In for returning sophomores, juniors, and seniors is on Friday, September 2

If you contracted with a storage or moving vendor, you are responsible for coordinating the delivery of your items. Please have them delivered to your residence hall. You must be physically present to meet your vendor. Vendors will need to sign in at the Public Safety desk.

Formal Check-In for upperclass students is on September 2 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. We encourage students to check in on this day to take advantage of Check-In resources and accommodations, like campus-wide blue bin rentals and street closures, which will only be available that day. 

However, upperclass students may choose to Check-In after September 2. 

Please log in to the Housing Portal to select your Check-In day and time. 

Check-In station locations are being finalized. Students will receive more information in August. 

Streets around your building may be closed to facilitate move-in. While you may park temporarily to unload your belongings, all day parking in those locations will not be allowed.

The Web Inventory Report (WIR) is an online report that records the conditions of the room and furniture at the time of Check-In. It serves as the basis for charges for any damage and/or loss attributable to the resident during occupancy. The WIR will become available through the Housing Portal once you have checked in and must be completed within 48 hours of Check-In or by September 7, whichever is sooner.
