Students will have the opportunity to see a residence hall room, measure for items to bring in the fall, and drop off some of their belongings.  Please note that not all rooms will be available because of summer school.

What to do if you are interested in the Early Drop Off:

Please bring your belongings to campus in sealed boxes to the Student Center (located off of Hughes Ave.). The following format should be used to label all boxes:

  • Full Name
  • Residence Hall
  • Room Number (If assigned to a suite, please indicate either side A or side B)
  • Number of boxes (i.e. 1 of 2, 2 of 2, etc.)

If an item cannot be sealed in a box, it should still be labeled using the same format as above. All boxes will need to be brought into the Student Center. All boxes will be in your room when you check in for August Orientation. 

Please Note: Students will not be able to see their assigned room. However, students will be able to see a typical model room style.

This event is not mandatory and is not New Student Orientation.
