EARLY ARRIVALS

As a general rule, students are not allowed into the apartments prior to the official opening dates in the fall unless the student is affiliated with a university-sponsored activity (athletic participation, campus employment, etc.) Requests for an early check-in should come from the appropriate university sponsor.

Some individuals may face specific circumstances that may require an early check-in to the apartments. For students approved for early arrival, there will be a non-refundable charge of $15 per day prior to the start of the Residence Life contract which begins August 31st. Requests made after Friday, August 15th will be assessed an additional one-time administrative fee of $20. Please realize that early arrival check-in may be refused for any individual who fails to provide prior notice.

Additional early arrival information can be found here.

Early arrivals will check-in at the 1st floor desk in Goodhue Hall, unless previous arrangements have been made by the university sponsor.
