Returning residential students and transfer students

Returning residential students and transfer students will move in on Tuesday, Sept. 6. Transfer students will arrive on campus between 9 and 10 a.m., and residential students will arrive based on the last digit of their room number.

During arrival, students should enter campus at the north entrance (at the stoplight) and park in the North Lots. Student check-in/arrival will be held in the A. W. Clausen Center for World Business. We ask that parents and family members wait in their vehicles while students complete the check-in/arrival process.

After checking in, residential students will drive south on Campus Drive, where Public Safety will direct families to unloading spots. After unloading their vehicle, students will need to move their cars to their permitted lots and family members will need to move their cars to the South Lower Lot.


  • Trailers and moving trucks are not allowed to park on Campus Drive.
  • Please consider bringing a dolly, cart, or wagon to assist you in moving items in and out of the facilities. Carthage does have carts and dollies available, but there is a limited supply.
  • Campus Drive will be open to one-way, southbound traffic one hour prior to the start of arrival and one hour after arrival ends. See campus map 

Returning commuter and off-campus students

Returning commuter and off-campus students will complete check-in/arrival from 9 to 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7, on the third-floor lobby of Lentz Hall.
