Pre-early arrival housing is located in FAR until Sunday, August 17, 2014 at 8 a.m. Upon checking out of FAR they will be allowed to check in to their permanent fall assignment. A free shuttle service will be offered starting at 7 a.m. on Sunday, August 17, 2014 for students moving from pre-early arrival housing into their permanent fall assignment room. The shuttle will take you and your belongings directly to your assigned hall to check in. The shuttles begin running at 7 a.m. and will run continuously until all students are transported to their fall assignment location.


The rates for early arrival housing are available on the Additional Rates page. This fee will be charged to the student’s account and will be reflected in the October bill. This fee includes three meals each day (continental breakfast, lunch, and dinner, beginning on Monday, August 18, 2014). 

When students are ready to check in to their fall University Housing room they can go directly to their area or complex front desk and the desk staff will check them in and give them their room key, card access to the facility, and other move-in information and materials.
