Fall Early Arrival Information

Hall Information

Approved early arrival students will be able to move into their fall assigned space. For information regarding the traditional fall move in visit the fall arrival guide.


Students can return to campus on the Saturday prior to the traditional fall move in period. For fall 2024, the move in date for early arrival is Saturday, August 17 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Students approved to arrive early are only able to check in on Saturday, August 17 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Saturday, August 17 to Wednesday, August 21 from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. No other times will be available to check students in.

Application Details

The Early Arrival Request Application will open as of July 1 and is available for students who need to arrive early to campus due to requirements of their academic program, working for the University to assist in fall semester move in, or working for the Bobcat Move-In Crew.

To complete the application, students can visit their Housing Self-Service page, click on the ‘Contracts & Applications’ tab, and select Early Arrival Request Application.

If students wish to volunteer for Bobcat Move In Crew, only the Bobcat Move In Crew application will need to be completed. The Bobcat Move In Crew application will be honored as the request for early arrival.

Cancellation Information

If a student makes a reservation to arrive early, and no longer needs to, the student will need to email to cancel.


The cost for arriving early to campus is $125, regardless of the date the student checks in ahead of the traditional move-in dates.

Those volunteering for Bobcat Move In Crew, and complete the training and all required shifts, will have the early arrival housing cost waived. Students who opt to have the early arrival meal plan, and participate in Bobcat Move In Crew, will still be responsible for the meal plan cost.

Food Service and Options

Students can complete an Early Arrival Meal Plan Application on their Housing Self-Service to select from two early arrival meal plan options.

There are two plans available, a Block 4 meal plan for $40 or a Block 8 meal plan for $80.

The meal plan is active from lunch on Sunday, August 18 through breakfast on Thursday, August 22
