Driving Directions to Campus

The residence halls officially open for new students beginning  on Friday, September 4, 2020. Check-In dates and times are being assigned this year in order to limit density on campus and in your residence hall at any given time. This is just one of the many efforts you will notice that are designed to mitigate risk and encourage a healthy and safe start to the year.
