Welcome Home Newman Hall!

The Newman Move In Team is here to make your first few days at college fun, relaxing, and memorable. The beginning of the Fall semester is exciting, yet busy, with move in day, welcome activities, and the beginning of classes – and we are here to help!

Move In Dates & Times

Newman Hall offers early move in beginning on Saturday, August 18!

With Early Move In, you can avoid the hassle, congestion, and parking challenges of moving in the same day as every other student on campus – plus you’ll get extra days to get settled in and meet new people on campus before classes start.

Move In prior to official Move In on Thursday, August 23 requires registration and an extra fee, but you’ll get the same great move in guide service (check the chart below for times) plus plenty of fantastic activities planned by the resident staff throughout the week.
