Tips for Move-In Day...
Where do we park while unloading?
There will be short term parking near the entrances to your hall. Please use that space just while unloading. We suggest that you unload everything onto the curb, then move your car to long-term parking.
Have one person stay with your personal belongings while you and another family member or a friend carry your stuff to your room. Don't worry, there will be people there to help with unloading, carrying and traffic flow.
What should we bring to make the move easier?
A dolly is handy for moving heavy items. Several lighter boxes will be easier than fewer heavier boxes.
Which halls have elevators?
Clare, Anthony, Judge, and Veronica Halls have a passenger elevator. Assisi and Siena townhouses and Francis Hall do NOT have an elevator.
Is there storage available?
There is no storage. It is strongly encourages that you send unneeded suitcases, boxes, and trunks home.
