What if I arrive to campus outside the dates/times available? 

If you are planning to arrive on campus outside of the designated move-in times/days, you will need to make sleeping arrangements such as hotel reservations until the next available move in appointment.

Does Housing Have Furniture or Other Household Items Available to New Residents?
