Undergraduate Early Arrivals
If you are part of a University group that requires your presence on Grounds before Opening (such as an athletic team or Session K Orientation), your program leader will contact Housing & Residence Life to coordinate approval for early arrivals. Students not part of a sponsored group need to submit an Early Arrival Application. However, the Early Arrival Application deadline of Ausust 8, 2017 has passed, and we are no longer accepting applications. If you feel you have an extraordinary situation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
