Answers to Questions about New Student Orientation

What day can I move into the residence hall?

New students will move into their dorm room on Friday, August 14th.  Students will obtain keys after completing the orientation process on Friday morning.

Will I know who my roommate is in advance?

Roommates are assigned based on the information given on the Resident Hall Questionnaire.  Because we continue to accept students into student housing late into the summer, roommate assignments are not finalized until just before move-in day.  You will find out who your roommate is at New Student Orientation.

What items can I bring into my dorm room?

Your room comes fully furnished with a bed, desk, chair, dresser, closet, lighting, and mirror.  Click here to see a full list of items you can and cannot bring to your dorm room.
