Are registration spots limited?
Residents will register for a 30-minute time slot for move in during the times that Move In Guides will be providing assistance (see time schedule above). Each 30-minute time slot is limited to 12 residents so that we can get your car unloaded quickly, and get you and your family on your way up to your room to settle in as soon as possible.

Can you really move me in that fast?
Yes, we really can. Our Move In Guides are incredible, and hands down the best on campus!

What if I am late in arriving to my reserved time slot?
While we ask you to please plan for and leave plenty of time for any traffic, weather, or other delays, we know that sometimes things don’t always work according to plan. If you arrive after your registered move in window, our Move In team will direct you to the late staging area to wait until an Unloading Station becomes available. We will move you in as soon as possible, once the residents who are registered for that time slot have been unloaded.

Can I bring someone to help me move in?
Yes! Each resident may bring up to 2 family members or support people to assist them during move in. You do not need to register family members or support people when you make your Move In reservation. The reservation is for the resident only.

Are there carts to help me move my belongings?
Yes! We have plenty of carts to help you get your belongings up to your room, whether you’re moving during the self-service times, or via the Move In Guides.

Will there be meals served during Move In?
Complimentary Grab & Go and complimentary lunches are provided for residents and families during the Saturday and Thursday move in days, and your meal plan begins immediately as soon as you move in.

Will there be Resident Orientation sessions on move in days?
Yes! We can’t wait to welcome you home in person and start getting to know you, and help you get to know Newman Hall. At 6 PM each night during move in residents are invited to join their floor groupings for a welcome home dinner plus resident orientation. This is your chance to meet other Newman Hall residents on your floor and nearby floors in person. We’ll be gathering in different groups in and around the building, so check your email and posters on your floor for your location, and plan to meet your RA in your hallway to walk over together. There’s a lot of information to know this year, whether you are a new resident or a returning one, so attending a Welcome session is required either the day you move in or the following day.

Will there be Parent Information Session on move in days?
We love meeting Newman Hall parents and helping to answer your questions. Parent Welcome sessions are an opportunity for you to meet Newman Hall staff, receive valuable information, and ask questions. We will be hosting Parent Information sessions on Saturday, August 13 and Thursday, August 18. The schedule for Parent Informations sessions will be available soon.
