Early Arrival Requests

Due to the increase in student organizations arriving to campus prior to move in, Residential Life will only be accepting personal early arrival requests on a case by case basis. Please note that if an early arrival request is approved then there will be a daily fee of $65 posted to the student account. There will be an additional $65 late fee if the early arrival request is made less than 5 business days prior to the requested check-in date.

Students who are members of a team or club that require an early arrival should contact their coach or group advisor for additional information. Early arrival charges may still apply for these student groups.
