Early Arrivals

In order to provide a unifying orientation experience for first-year students and their parents on Saturday, August 19, 2017, a very limited number of early arrivals will be allowed. Limited early arrival will be available for students who are required to be on campus to participate in an official university sanctioned program or service.  
Names of students who are participating in approved pre-opening programs will be submitted to Residence Life and Housing Services by that program’s sponsor. Questions regarding inclusion on the list, dates, times, etc. should be directed to the program advisor/sponsor. Students whose names have been submitted for early arrival will be emailed a confirmation of their early arrival status on July 6th.  If you do not receive an email from Residence Life and Housing confirming your early arrival status, please contact your program advisor/sponsor.

Individual early arrival requests may be submitted through the Early Arrival Application on MyHousing no later than July 15, 2017.  Individual requests will be granted only in cases of extreme hardship; please be prepared to make alternate plans. 

First-year students, new transfer students, and Oxford Continuees may begin to move into the residence halls at their assigned times on Saturday, August 19, 2017, while other students may arrive starting Sunday, August 20, 2017 at 9:00am. Please make your travel plans based on these dates.
