Move In: Fall 2017 Returning Students

Move-In Information

Welcome back! Residence halls, townhouses and apartments open on Sunday, August 27, 2017 for returning students. You can pick up your key from your designated RHO between 9 am and 9 pm. Please be sure to bring your GOCard with you, for this is the only way we are able to check students in. Further information will be disseminated later in the summer.

Continuing students will not be issued keys or able to check in on either August 25 or August 26, as these are the New Student Move-in Days. 

August Transition Information


On the check-in date listed in Hoya Housing, you can proceed to your academic year assignment designated RHO to get a Lockout Key to your academic year space. Once you have moved-out of your summer space, return your summer key to the RHO for the summer assignment space and check-out. Then proceed to your academic year RHO where you will exchange the Lockout Key for your academic year room key and be checked in to your academic space.


Students who are moving in early will have access to free 2-hour parking in the Southwest garage. Vehicular traffic and street parking is not permitted on campus and cars found in violation will be ticketed. If you are parking on city streets, please obey posted parking signs and rules.

After parking, students will proceed to their designated RHO to obtain their room key and check in. Please follow up with your early arrival program’s Advisor for instructions on how to proceed after moving-in.
