Things To Do Before You Arrive
First things first; take care of these items before you get to campus. You won't regret it!
1. Choose Your Preferences
Make your residence hall, roommate, and bath choices by July 1st! Go to your My Housing page and update your preferences.
2. Contact Your Roommate
Your new roomie's email and phone number will be listed on your official housing assignment (which we will be rolling out to you beginning in mid-July). Get acquainted and decide who will be bringing the TV, etc.
3. Consider Purchasing Property Insurance
Students can minimize the financial impact of theft, fire, etc., by insuring their personal property. Many homeowner policies cover student belongings, or parents can purchase a rider on their insurance.
4. Complete Your Emergency Contact/Medical Forms Online
Students must complete or review their Emergency Contact/Medical Forms. These forms will provide information that would be helpful during an emergency.
5. Get your Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination
All first-time students will not be allowed to register for classes, even during orientation sessions, until University Health Services (UHS) has received and processed documentation showing that you have received the bacterial meningitis vaccine. Learn more.
6. Schedule a Check-In Time
Schedule a check-in time that is convenient for you. The Check-In Scheduler will be available in June.
