Early Arrival Requests
Residential Services occasionally gets requests for students wanting to move in earlier than the dates listed above. Selected students deemed essential for the opening of the residence halls and residential colleges are permitted to check in on Thursday, September 19, 2012 (after 1 p.m.). Examples:
- Peer Adviser staff
- Purple Posse volunteers
- Selected hall government officers
- Selected staff working the Information & Mail Centers
Students with one of these groups are encouraged to confirm with their advisor or supervisor that they are permitted to move in on Thursday.
NOTE: There are representatives of some student organizations that are given the opportunity to participate in Wildcat Welcome. However, most of these groups are not approved to move in early.
Students not in one of the groups listed above should assume that the earliest they can check in to the residence halls is 9 a.m. on Monday, September 24, 2012. Contact your Area Coordinator if you have any questions.
Shipping Items in Advance
If you'll be living in University housing and intend to ship some of your belongings before you arrive, please refer to the information on the Wildcat Welcome Package Centers for the process, important dates, and other useful information to ensure a smooth experience.
Tt is important to know that two processes are different than what you are used to from previous years. When you check in, a blank Room Condition Inventory will be included in your key packet. You are responsibly for accurately recording the condition of your room and submitting the form to your Community Assistant. If you have a non-emergency maintenance request, you now submit it online (instead of reporting it to your CA). Emergency maintenance requests are still directed to a CA or NUPD.
