Student Arrival and Move-In

We’re excited to welcome our students to campus for the 2020-21 academic year! 

During arrival, students should enter campus at the north entrance (at the stoplight) and park in the north lots. Student check-in will be held in the A. W. Clausen Center for World Business. After checking in, residential students will drive south on Campus Drive where Public Safety will direct families to unloading spots. After unloading their vehicle, residential students and their families will need to move their cars to the South Lower Parking Lot, just west of the N. E. Tarble Athletic and Recreation Center (the TARC). Commuting students can leave their vehicles in the student parking sections of the north lots.

Please note:

  • Residential students may only have two people assisting them with move-in to manage physical distancing within each time block and the buildings.
  • 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.
