Students are expected to arrive for check-in at the assigned date and time at the start of the academic year. Students will go to the check-in area for the residence hall or suite to which they are assigned. Confirmation of status, record of a signed housing contract and the room or suite assignment will be made and keys issued to the student (keys will not be issued to friends, relatives or other persons on behalf of the student). The student will go to their room/suite with a member of the Residence Life staff in order to inspect the room and sign the Room Condition Contract. Failure to check-in properly will result in a $50.00 charge and may result in loss of points toward the next Room Draw.
