Check-In and Move-In Information

Resident Move-In Day - Sunday, August 27, 2017 from 9:00am to 1:00pm

We are very excited that you will be joining our residential community and hope that you are prepared for the unique opportunities and challenges that await you this fall and spring.

On Sunday, August 27th, two things need to be done before gaining access to your residences hall:

  1. Check-In at the Hubert Campus Center
  2. Get cleared with our Business Office and Financial Aid Office

New students will not gain access to their room or residence hall without checking-in at the Hubert Campus Center. Please park at the Hubert Campus Center before you start unloading. You will be given directions from there.

Students who arrive early will NOT be able to move in prior to the designated move-in time. In the rare case that you cannot check in during the move-in time, please contact the Office of Residence Life prior to orientation.

If you do arrive early please explore the City of New Haven and Town of Hamden area. Getting familiar with the area helps the transition to college. There are many stores and local places to eat at.

Please have your Key and ID ready when you arrive to your residence hall after checking-in. You will be asked to show them before you begin unloading. Returning student volunteers taking part in our Frankie’s Move-In Crew program will be available to help carry your belongings up to your residence hall room. If your family happens to have one, students are encouraged to bring their own dollies or two-wheeled carts from home to assist their move in process.

Please be prepared to unload quickly and move your car into the Hubert Campus Center parking lot. You may only unload ONE car at a time; if you bring more than one vehicle, other vehicles must be parked in the Hubert Campus Center parking lot. Please leave one driver with the vehicle at all times during unloading outside the residence hall.

All cars that will remain on campus need to be parked in the Hubert Campus Center parking lot until 8:00pm Sunday, August 27th. After that time students will be able to park in the areas designated to them.
