Move-in day is always an exciting and often emotional time for students and families. As outlined in a correspondence by Mr. Dillon Beckford, Executive Director of Residential Life & Housing. If you and your student have not already done so, I encourage you to read the letter outlining residential move in and the updated policies designed to mitigate student exposure to COVID-19 within our living and learning communities.
Among the important highlights in the correspondence, all students are required to read, sign and submit the updated housing contract prior to their arrival in August. Students will not be allowed to move in unless they have read and signed the contract and agreed to the terms set forth in the contract. Students under the age of 18 will also require the signature of their parents or legal guardian(s).
Please know that students have the option to stay home and complete their classes online. If you are considering this option, please contact the Office of Residential Life & Housing regarding cancellation of your fall housing assignment.
The University’s acceptance of this contract guarantees you a space in a residence hall, not a specific building. Your assigned spaces are subject to change at any time before returning to campus for the semester. Residents must personally claim their residence hall space by the designated date set forth by the University before 5:00pm. Space not claimed by that time will be forfeited. All residents must move in on the designated dates and time. The University reserves the right to cancel and reassign all rooms at its discretion based on space availability
