Special Programs and Groups - Housing Early Arrival

The official Arrival Days for fall semester are Thursday August 22 - Saturday August 24. University Housing is available beginning Monday August 19 for Early Arrival to assist students who need to arrive early to campus due to programs, work, travel arrangements, etc. There is an additional fee for this service: $30.00 per night

Students do not need to request early arrival - they can simply Schedule Move-In for their planned arrival day. The earliest arrival date is 9:00 a.m. Monday August 19; students will not be able to arrive prior to Monday August 19.

Some students may need to arrive early to participate in a Special Program. Please review the Special Programs listed below to verify Arrival days and whether the student is responsible for the Housing Early Arrival Fee.
