Step 1: Check-In To Your Room

Go to the North Area Office in Wade Commons or the South Area Office in Fribley Commons to check into their residence hall room and receive their student ID card (if necessary), key card or keys. 

Step 2: Unload and Move-In

Students can proceed to unload their car and move-in, by their residence hall.  See maps and parking details for more information.  Limited number of dollies/carts will be available for you to sign out at the area office (ID is required).  

Step 3: Move Car to Parking Lot 

North Campus

When the last load is in the student's room, the car should be moved immediately to North Residential Village Garage (Lot 46 - E. 117 and Euclid) to free up space on the streets for other students to move in. 

South Campus

If you are using one of the identified 20 minute unloading zones in Lot 44 or 57, please move your car to another location to free up the unloading zone for other residents to use.

COVID-19 Testing for Residential Students  

Students who are moving into residential, on-campus housing are strongly recommended to take a Covid-19 test prior to arriving on campus. If you test positive, please do not come to campus until you have completed the isolation period and have tested negative.  Tests will also be available in vending machines in Wade, Fribley and Leutner commons.
