Where do I go to move-in and what do I need to bring?

To move-in, please go to the hall in which you've been assigned to start the move-in process.

When you arrive at your designated hall, proceed to the Front Desk and be ready to provide the following information:

  • All personal contact information
  • Your assigned room number
  • Your EMU EagleOne Card or other picture identification

How does move-in work?

At move-in, a staff member will assist you in filling out a Room Condition Form outlining the current condition and inventory of the room. It is important that you agree with what is written on this form before you sign it. When you move-out, the same Room Condition Form will be reviewed and completed again. It is through differences on the form that any damage charges will be assessed. You are encouraged to photo document your room concerns at move-in.

Can I move-in early?

Due to staff training and other constraints, we cannot accommodate any earlier move-ins prior to this date and time.

Where can I park while moving in?

Unloading areas will be available near the building for you to unload your belongings. You will then be required to move your vehicle to a Parking Lot so that others are able to use the unloading areas. The Department of Public Safety clearly marks parking and unloading areas.
