The Do's & Don'ts
Please review the following carefully before submitting your Early Arrival Request

- If your request is not approved, you will be required to wait until the published residence hall opening date to move in.
- Many services, such as Dining, may not be fully operational prior to the published residence hall opening date.
- Early Arrival is not guaranteed and will be assessed based on eligibility.
- If the student withdraws from the program/event that necessitated their early arrival, they will no longer be eligible to arrive early.
- Approved students are responsible for the 'Terms & Conditions' outlined in their housing contract and will be expected to abide by all housing Community Standards during the early arrival period.
- Overnight guests are not permitted during the early arrival period.
- Building maintenance, including painting and final cleaning, may be ongoing in the residential communities during the early arrival period.
