Hall Opening

Fall Semester Hall Opening

Each August, the Office of Residence Life welcomes new and returning students to the residence halls through a series of Move In days. When students arrive on campus, they will check in with a member of the Residence Life staff and pick up the key to their assigned room on campus. New and Returning Student arrival dates will be communicated by Residence Life throughout the summer months. 

Fall 2021 Move In Dates:

  • Football Athlete Move In - August 10, 2021
  • First Connections Participant Move In - August 16, 2021
  • Fall Athlete Move In - August 18, 2021
  • New Student (First Year and Transfer) Move In - August 20, 2021
  • New-To-Campus Orientation Participants - August 22, 2021
  • Returning Students - August 23-24, 2021

Spring Semester Hall Opening

After the Winter Break period, the Residence Halls traditionally reopen the weekend before classes resume for the Spring semester. The residence halls will reopen for all students on Sunday, January 9, 2022 at 9:00am CT.

Early Arrivals and Late Depatures

The College schedules additional move in days for sponsored early arrival group, including fall athletes, orientation leaders, and other essential student staff. Students outside of these sponsored groups may request approval from the Office of Residence Life for an early arrival. Approval is required and is typically granted in limited circumstances.

Similarly, students may request late departure from the residence halls. Again, approved is required from the Office of Residence Life. Any College-sponsored groups (student athletes still competing in tournaments) will be automatically approved in communication with respective offices. 

All individually approved early arrival/departure requests will result in a charge of $25 per day assessed to the student's billing account.
