Message from the Director

I hope you are well and am excited you will be joining us on campus very soon!  In an abundance of caution due to COVID-19 we have created guidelines for Fall term move in that must be followed.  Please check your student email or the Housing Application Portal for the full message.  Here are some highlights:

Move in day is September 10.

  • If you are moving in to Bedroom 1 or 3, you are scheduled to move in between 9:00AM and 12:00PM.
  • If you are moving in to Bedroom 2 or 4, you are scheduled to move in between 1:00PM and 4:00PM.

You will be permitted to bring one other person to assist you with your move. Everyone must wear a mask.

We care about the safety of this community.  We also want you to have a great college experience.  If we adhere to the guidelines of social distancing, mask wearing, and cleanliness we will be in a good place.

College might look different this year and our programming may not be the same.  I think we can all agree that COVID has changed our expectations for everything.  What I can say with certainty is that different is not always bad.  We will do our best to give you a great experience.  I am looking forward to a great year.  Let's start it off right by embracing the different, wearing the mask, and keeping each other safe.

Please be sure to check our COVID page for details and resources, as well. Let us know if you have questions or concerns.  I look forward to seeing you around campus soon.
