Early Arrivals

We are excited to welcome students to campus on Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26, 2018.  If your circumstances will require you to arrive earlier than our scheduled move-in days, please be aware that your move-in experience may differ as we are able to provide you the best service on these specific days.  Assistance unloading vehicles will not be available for early arrivals; please plan accordingly.  

University Sponsored Group Early Arrivals 
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. Please contact your program's advisor or sponsor if you have questions regarding inclusion on the list. Students whose names have been submitted for early arrival will be emailed a confirmation of their early arrival status on a rolling basis beginning in July.  If you believe you should be included on your program's list but do not receive an email from our office by July 15th, please contact your program's advisor or sponsor. 

Individual Early Arrivals
Individual early arrival requests must be submitted through the Early Arrival Request Application on MyHousing no later than July 15, 2018.  Individual requests are reviewed by a committee and will be granted on a case by case basis.  Requests are not guaranteed approval; please be prepared to make alternate plans. 

Individual students who are granted early arrival will be charged a $75 nightly rate that will be posted to their OPUS account.
