    Moving In 

    Please remember families and guests are encouraged to participate with their student throughout the day’s activities. To help us keep things organized please label all items with your first and last names, and residence hall and room number. Since parking is very limited, we ask that you refrain from bringing your items in a trailer.

    1. Once you arrive at campus, you will be directed to your residence hall by Public Safety and/or Bexley Police officers. Please see the directions below for routes to your specific residence hall. 
    2. You will pull up to your building and be greeted by members of the campus community who will help with heavy lifting. Campus ROTC cadets will provide directions on unloading your vehicle. Unloading goes quickly, so please have a driver remain with the car at all times. 
    3. Students should head inside and get their keys and Capital IDs, along with meeting their RA and completing a room assessment. 
    4. After settling into your room, please check in at 2018 Fest to receive your orientation materials and enjoy some treats from local businesses between 11 am and 2 pm.

    Volunteers who are helping you move in will be careful, but they cannot be responsible for lost or damaged items. If it makes you more comfortable, feel free to carry things like laptops and TVs yourself.
