Fall Early Arrival

Hall Information:

Approved early arrival students will be able to move into their fall assigned space.


Students can return to campus on the Saturday prior to the traditional fall move in period. For fall 2023, the move in date for early arrival is Saturday, August 19 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Students approved to arrive early are only able to check in on Saturday, August 19 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Saturday, August 19 to Wednesday, August 23 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. For more information about Bobcat Move In Crew, click here.

Cancellation Information:

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


The cost for early arrival housing is $125 and will be charged directly to the student's account. No matter the date the student checks in from Saturday, August 19 to Wednesday, August 23 the cost will be $125 for arriving early to campus.

Those volunteering for Bobcat Move In Crew, and complete 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 20 through breakfast on Thursday, August 24
