Express Check-In

Avoid the rush of move-in day by requesting to move your belongings into the residence hall early on August 10th! Express Check-In is a day for incoming first year students moving into East or Garver Halls to move any or all of their belongings into their room for the fall. This is not the date in which the student will begin living in the residence hall, but is a chance to move that heavy fridge or bulky comforter in early so that move in day on August 24th is a breeze! Arrive to campus in the fall with your room already set up and ready for you to live in.

In order to be approved for Express Check-In, the Office of Residential Life will confirm that incoming students are enrolled and cleared through Student Financial Services. Incoming students will be contacted by July 12th with the status of their request.

To request to participate in Express Check-In, please complete the following form:

Express Check-In Request Form

All requests will be notified of their approval or denial by July 12th. 

Students who are approved for Express Check-In will be welcome to arrive any time between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm on Saturday, August 10, 2019. Approved students and their families should arrive to their assigned residence hall and a member of the Student Life team will be there to meet you and open your room for you. Once your belongings are safety inside, you will notify the staff at the front desk who will return to securely lock the door to your room.

If you have questions about this day, please contact Jordan McIntyre, Residence Hall Director for First Year Halls at or by contacting the Office of Residential Life at (260) 982-5052 and we would be happy to answer any questions you may have!
