Housing & Residential Services is excited to embrace the 2022 Spring Semester with you. Many of our community members are returning to the on-campus living experience. However, there will be some that will be joining us for the first time!  Just know that there is space and support here in the residence halls to help you succeed.  

Continue to monitor your emails and the Move-in page for important updates on your arrival for the Spring Semester. There will be a centralized check-in process for all our residents. It is imperative that a member of the housing team completes your check-in process and will be able to answer any remaining questions you may have at that time. As you continue to #StayWithUs - together we will strive to keep our community a caring and welcoming space for all. This is truly the “Value of Living On-Campus”.

Yours in Service,

Director
