COVID-19 Safety Precautions

  • Please wear an appropriate face covering (your nose and mouth should be completely covered at all times).
  • We ask that everyone abides by physical distancing guidelines by remaining at least 6 feet away from others during the move-in process.
  • During the physical moving of your items into the hall, the college is only allowing a total of 3 people (the student & 2 guests) inside the building. A maximum number of 2 people can be in the elevator at one time, so guests will be asked to take the stairs up to the 5th floor (unless they are physically unable).
  • Your guests will be allowed to help you unpack and stay with you for up to 3 hours maximum, after which point they will need to leave the building.
  • Should you need any accommodations due to a disability or compromised health condition please email to by August 15th so that we can make appropriate accommodations.

Move-In Process

  • A staff member will greet you curbside at your vehicle to provide you with further instructions and to explain the check-in stations and process. At that time, a staff member will bring you a cart to move your belongings to your room. Only one trip will be allowed up the elevator so please pack lightly.
  • You can use the cart to move your belongings from your parked vehicle into your assigned space. NOTE: the driver of the vehicle will be asked to move the vehicle from the loading zone immediately after your items are moved to the cart. You are also welcome to bring your own moving materials. However, please keep in mind that there will be only one trip up to your room.
  • During the physical moving of your items into the hall, the college is only allowing a total of 2 people (the student & 1 guest) inside the building. Other members of the student’s family/friends will be allowed into the hall to see the student’s room and help them unpack; however, those individuals will need to use the stairs and will be limited to designated hours.
  • Should you need any accommodations due to a disability please email by August 15th so that we can plan accordingly.
  • Once inside the building, a staff member will check you in using the online system and you will be provided with keys to the building as well as your assigned space.
  • There will be staff members present at each elevator on each floor to ensure physical distance and assist with navigation to your assigned space; they will also bring the cart back to the ground floor for the next student who is moving in.
