  • Academic Program — Students required to be on-campus due to the early start of an academic program (i.e. student teaching, faculty-sponsored research projects, etc.).
  • Summer Housing — Students who have been living in on campus housing during the summer. These students will be contacted by the Office of Community Living to transition to fall room assignments in early to mid August.
  • Sibling of a New Student — For residents with a sibling who is a new student arriving on August 17th.

If you do not meet the above criteria, other circumstances will be carefully considered but will likely include an early arrival fee. The following request types for early arrival will be considered for approval dependent on availability and with a $100 per night fee assessed to your student account.

  • Family or personal conflict — For students who themselves or whose families are unable to arrive on Returning Student Move-In due to work or family commitments or are coming from a great distance.
  • Off campus employment — Students who are working off-campus and need to be back early for a job.

Please do not make requests for the following reasons:

  • Roommate already on campus — Students who are hoping to move in because their roommate(s) has arrived early will not be approved for early arrival. Unauthorized early arrivals will be billed the $100 per night early arrival fee and may be asked to leave.
  • Just want to be back — If there is no specific reason for a student to be on campus early, we will not approve an early arrival.
