If your flight is scheduled to arrive after regular business hours, please contact Residence Services to make special arrangements to move in.

Please do not book your flights to arrive earlier than Move-In Day whenever possible. Also, you must ensure that your departure meets the move-out dates for Residence as you will not be allowed to stay in Residence after the move-out date if you are leaving Residence at the end of the term.

International students

If your flight is scheduled to arrive after regular business hours, please contact Residence Services to make special arrangements to move in. We are not able to accommodate arrivals prior to January 2.

Moving in for Spring and Summer terms

Spring/Summer 2019 Move-In

Friday, May 3, 2019
10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Current residents staying for the Spring/Summer terms will also move to designated summer housing the first week of May. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please note: You will be charged nightly for the days between the end of the Winter term and the beginning of the Spring term if you choose to stay in residence between those terms.

Office hours in April are from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. In May, office hours are extended until 10 p.m.

International students

If you are an English as a Second Language (ESL) student and your program begins in April, please contact Residence Services to inquire if space is available for move in before the beginning of your studies. The Winter term runs from January to May, therefore, it is possible that no space is available until May. If space is available, it is likely that you will need to move to a temporary placement for April and then again in May to summer housing.

If your flight is scheduled to arrive after regular business hours, please contact Residence Services to make special arrangements to move in.
