Where should I park for check in?
To ensure the safety of all our residents, it’s important that you obey all fire lane markings and other posted parking notices.
During Check-In, parking is restricted in certain areas to ensure safety. You should park in the commuter parking lot across the street from Schewel Hall. If you are a first year residential student, once you have completed the Check-In process, you will be provided a Move-In Parking Pass. This will allow you temporary access to unload in a designated area adjacent to your residential facility. While moving in, vehicles should not be left unattended at any time. For the convenience of others students who are moving in, once you have unloaded your vehicle you will be required to move your vehicle to an approved First Year parking location. More information will be provided to you at Check-In.
What if I am towing a trailer?
Due to parking space limitations and fire safety, trailers will be directed to specific parking locations after you have completed the check-in process.
