Get Moving! Helpful info about move-in this month

For students living on campus, move-in is less than two weeks away!

Freshmen will move in Aug. 16-17; continuing students in main campus residence halls and apartments, Aug. 18-20; transfer and readmitted students, Aug. 17-20.

Student-athletes, student employees, international students, students in the Cormier Honors College and other special student groups may have different move-in schedules. Members of these groups who have an early move-in date will receive that information from their group leaders.

All other students who will be living in Longwood-managed housing in the coming year should have already received specific information about their individual move-in schedule and instructions via email.

You can also find general information online from the Office of Residential and Commuter Life here.

Please keep these things in mind …

Smoke-Free Policy
Please observe Longwood’s smoke-free policy. Smoking is permitted only in designated smoking areas on campus.

—Arrive at your designated move-in time.
—Plan to report to the lobby or check-in location of your assigned residence hall.

Staff will verify your student’s room assignment and identity. (Your student will need to provide photo  identification.) Staff will then will provide you with keys and other check-in material.  If you have made arrangements/ordered in advance, student IDs and parking permits will also be issued.

—Vehicles that park on campus anywhere other than their designated parking areas will be ticketed and/or towed.

Maintenance and Housekeeping

Do not obstruct the walkways or stairways with your personal belongings or trash. Think fire and personal injury prevention!
