Fall 2018 Move-in

Learn more about new and returning student move-in.


We encourage you to decorate your room to reflect your personality and style. Many rooms have bulletin boards or tack strips; we also suggest using fun-tack for hanging things on the walls instead of nails or tacks. Students are not permitted to paint, install carpeting (area rugs are fine), hang wallpaper, or apply contact paper or decals. Students are also not permitted to hang items from ceiling pipes or fire-safety equipment, or to alter any university furniture in any way.
