Move-In Information

Book Cover

Living on campus is more than just a place to sleep and study. It connects you the pulse of campus life by exposing you to:

  • Residential community programs
  • Support of student and professional Residential Life staff
  • Opportunities to meet people that will be your friends for life
  • Employment and leadership opportunities

The Move-In Process has been designed to be as seamless as possible. Here is a snapshot of the steps that will take place for a successful move-in:

  1. Students/Family Arrive
  2. Park in Designated Lots
  3. Swipe Student ID
  4. Unload Vehicle
  5. Proceed to Assigned Hall
  6. Receive Keys
  7. Take Belongings to Room

Move-In Date and Times

Incoming First-Year Students:  Move-In begins at 7 a.m. - noon (Baynes, New Res II, Rush and Chidley), 1 - 5 p.m (Eagleson, Richmond, McLean, Annie Day and Ruffin) on Thursday August 10. Students staying in these halls will be notified via email.

***Drop & Go (Incoming First-Year Students ONLY): Drop & Go allows students and/or parents to drop off their belongings in the students' room before move-in day.  To take advantage of this no-cost opportunity, please complete the Drop & Go Application via the students' myEOL Housing Portal.  Drop & Go will occur on Sunday August 6 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Continuing Students:  Continuing students may begin moving into their rooms starting at 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 12.  

All students should be regularly checking their emails (and spam folders) over the summer for important announcements regarding move-in.

Drop & Go

We realize that it's more convenient for some students to move their belongings on a weekend.  Drop & Go is designed to serve that purpose. With Drop & Go, you will be allowed to park close to your assigned hall and move your items in. This will also give you a chance to make your room more comfortable. You will not be allowed to stay during Drop & Go. To ensure the safety of your items, hall staff will take pictures of the room before you turn in the key and depart. You will be able to move-in on Move-In Day, but just think...you will avoid the stress of having to move-in all your items.

Please contact Residential Life for Drop & Go dates.
