When is move-in?
August 26-30: New and returning student housing move-in (by appointment)
New/International Students: January 6
Returning Students: January 10
Important Tips for Move-in
- Bring essentials for school and small comforts. You will want to bring things to campus that can be packed in 72 hours into a readily available car. We want to be sure CCS housing students are prepared in case a second wave of Covid hits. Futons and large TVs are discouraged.
- When you arrive, please unload your car to the curb as soon as possible, so that you can move your car into the parking structure. From there, you can bring your items into the building.
- Considering family work schedules, if you are able to sign up during a weekday, it would be kind to leave the weekend spaces available to those who can't take work off.
- Carts are extremely limited. If you are able to bring your own carts/dollies it would be greatly appreciated.
- Try to coordinate with your roommates to sign up for different times so families are not moving in together. This can help with social distancing.
- Please stick closely with your move-in time as we have a lot of students to get moved in safely. If you are unable to attend/be late you will need to coordinate with your RLC as soon as you know.
In order to expedite move-in and keep it as safe as possible, we ask that first-year students fill out an additional form to submit a headshot photo for the school year. This will be put onto your CCS ID cards. A Jpeg will be fine for this process. ONLY first-year students need to fill out this form. Returning students will have their picture from last year.
