Please try to arrive on campus as close to the beginning of your move-in window as possible. When you arrive on campus, use the main campus entrance on La Paz Road. You will pass by the lower campus entrance and be greeted at the main entrance. Follow the signs to your assigned residence hall. A team of student volunteers will warmly welcome you and help carry your belongings to your room. Please ensure ALL items are clearly labeled with your name and room number. The driver will be asked to stay with the vehicle and move the vehicle to lower campus as soon as the car has been unloaded in order to ensure ample parking for all new students as they arrive. After move-in, you will check in for Orientation at the Welcome Tent on Kerrwood Lawn to receive important information and have your student ID card photo taken.
