We are requesting that students bring no more than two people with them to assist with the move-in process. We also encourage students to limit the number of belongings that they bring (no more than one carload). We advise students not to bring any large items, such as couches or other large furniture pieces as suites/apartments are fully furnished. 

Please continue to review your Davenport email throughout the summer for updates on the move in process. Other information about move in and general information about Housing and Residence Life is available on the FAQ page.

Housing and meal plan charges are added to your student account each semester. Payment arrangements for all University charges must be paid and classes must be confirmed prior to move in. Please review your information on your Student Financial Dashboard (the link can be found on your Student Connections page) to confirm your classes and work with accounting to pay in full or set up a payment plan.
