The Oce of University Housing provides on-campus accommodaons
for the freshman class. It is important for your student to abide by
departmental and university rules and regulaons. Being familiar with the
Housing Handbook by Freshman Move-In Day (Sunday, August 12, 2018) is
the best way to start the school year o right!
In early August, residenal students will receive a leer sent to their
university email address that details Move-In Day info. Roommate names
and contact informaon will be distributed two weeks before move in.
Students should reach out to each other to get acquainted, plan room
décor and decide who will bring what supplies to help cut costs and save
space! Students will need to make sure that their rst full payment for
housing and meals is made prior to the Universitys deadline for tuion and
fees (Wednesday, August 8, 2018).
