Move-In will take place from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 21. All students must sign up for a move-in time to help the campus manage traffic and limit congestion. Review the Move-In Stop Drop & Go Map for directions on how to arrive at campus for check-in and how to proceed to your student’s Stop, Drop & Go zone. All students should arrive at the Wellness Center parking lot by Columbia Road or Gateway Drive. Due to campus construction, traffic traveling north bound and south bound on Columbia Road will not be able to turn west to enter campus via University or 2nd Avenue. Check out the Campus Renewal blog for more construction updates.

Additionally, Squires Hall dining center will be temporarily closed due to low staffing levels.
