Coaches and leaders of trainings or orientation programs should review the Group Protocol.
With the exception of those students who are approved early arrivals in a university-sponsored training or orientation program (Athletics, Smooth Transitions, Orientation, etc.), no student shall be permitted to move into the Residence Halls before August 16, 2021 (for the Fall 2021 semester).
This includes students leasing off-campus housing whose leases end July 31. The University cannot accommodate early arrivals prior to August 16, 2021, to ensure that Residence Halls can be repaired and cleaned for move-in.
All Early Arrival applications must be submitted by July 30, 2021. After the deadline, only students having extenuating circumstances will be considered for early arrival and will be subject to late fees as outlined below. By submitting an application, you acknowledge all policies, fees, and expectations outlined on this page regarding early arrival.
Students who move in early will be charged $15 per night through their designated move-in day (incoming students – August 21, 2021; returning students – August 23, 2021). This fee increases to $20 per night for individuals who submit applications late. Students that are typically exempt from the early arrival fee will be charged a one-time late fee of $20 for submitting a late application. The early arrival fee will appear as an early/break housing fee on your Ebill.
Students who are eligible for early arrival must have no record of serious conduct violations (alcohol or substance abuse, residence hall or conduct probation, vandalism, security or safety violations, etc.) within the past 2 semesters. Such violations will result in the immediate denial of your application, regardless of reason for applying. Students applying for early arrival must meet one of the following qualifications:
PLEASE NOTE: Students with off-campus jobs should not arrange to start work prior to August 16, 2021.
The University does its best to ensure that all Residence Halls are move-in ready. However, students moving in early should be aware that Facilities and Housekeeping may need to complete additional work after students have moved in (carpet cleaning, painting, etc.). Residential & Commuter Life and Facilities will work in tandem to provide residents with the most up-to-date information pertaining to their assigned space.
Unless otherwise noted, students arriving early can pick up their keys in the Office of Residential & Commuter Life, Monday through Friday, 9 am – 4 pm. Please make every effort to schedule travel to pick up your key in this time frame. All approved early arrivals will receive notice to their Capital email confirming key pick-up time and location.
Violation of the above policies and procedures, other applicable university policies, and local, state, and federal laws are subject to immediate revocation of the privilege of being in the residence halls before classes start, double fines, and other sanctions as appropriate.
All questions, concerns and rosters can be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
