Living in a community space can be a lot of fun.

Please review this list carefully before packing and coming to campus. You can find more specifics in our resident handbooks. We also provide some extras you may want to purchase or rent. These Add-Ons include refrigerator/microwave combo appliances, linen packages, personal safes, and more. Find the details under the Add-Ons on our Amenities page.
Annual Housing Orientation & Check-In
All on-campus residents must complete a mandatory online Annual Housing Orientation prior to moving into your residence hall or prior to scheduling your apartment check-in appointment. Once this has been completed students will visit a series of stations where they will be checked in to our data management system, pick up and sign for keys/room inventories, and receive information regarding unloading zones and subsequent parking.
The orientation and check-in processes vary slightly by the type of residential community: apartments or our residence halls so please take a closer look at the information and links provided below.
