What do I need for check in?
Check your email for messages from the Office of Financial Aid and follow any instructions there. This will save you a stop at check-in.

Pack your belongings, with the What to Bring checklist as your guide.

Where do I check in?
All students check in at Schewel Hall. Do not go to your residence hall first.
First-year students will receive a move-in ticket and a map showing easy directions from the back of campus, down College Drive, and into the main campus entrance. Volunteers will direct you down the right road, too. When you pull up behind your residence hall, volunteers will help you quickly unload and then watch your belongings while you park your car. Then they help you carry everything to your new home away from home.
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 need to request an early arrival?
If extenuating circumstances necessitate arrival in advance of your scheduled check in date/time, please submit an official early arrival request using the form available on my.lynchburg.edu. Once logged into my.lynchburg.edu, click Residential on the left menu bar, then the Arrival Form tab. Early arrival is not guaranteed. You will receive written confirmation via email if/when your request is approved. Please note that approved early arrivals will be subject to a daily rate surcharge.
What if I am unable to get to Schewel Hall prior to 4 p.m. on my scheduled check-in day?
We are not able to check students in after the advertised check in times. However, if an emergency situation occurs or you have extenuating circumstances and are unable to arrive prior to 4:00 p.m. on your designated check in day, please contact the Office Housing of Residence Life at 434.544.8320 on the day of your check in.
What do I need to bring with me to check in to register my vehicle?
The following documents are required at the time of a new vehicle registration: a current state vehicle registration card, a valid state operator’s license, and valid proof of current vehicle insurance.
Registration will be delayed if any of these required items are not presented.
Who do I contact if I need special accommodations to complete the check-in process?
Is there anything else I should do before I check in?
In addition to review the attached Business Office Checklist, you should download and install the free LiveSafe app from your app store. Once installed, register your mobile phone number, fill out your profile, verify your account and select University of Lynchburg.
Will I be able to eat on campus once I arrive?
The campus meal plan begins at breakfast on Friday, August 17.
