Returning Student Move-In

Summer is beginning to wind down, and many people on campus are busy preparing for your return. In this message you will find some important information associated with your return to campus and the start of a new academic year. Some of you will return in just a few weeks for various college programs, so we wanted to ensure that this information reaches you in a timely manner.

You will not be able to check into your fall housing before Saturday, August 30, unless you are working for a college office or department that has made prior arrangements with Residence Life & Housing for your early return.

Check-in locations are open until 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday night.

Any keys not picked up by 7 p.m. on Sunday night will be moved to Residence Life & Housing for pickup during normal business hours during the first week of classes (Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.). Please contact Residence Life & Housing directly at reslife@dickinson.edu with any questions.

Residence Life & Housing encourages all students to review their room condition and inventory report once they move into their fall housing assignment. Information on how to access the inventory report will be posted on your door when you move-in.  You should find your room condition and inventory report on the Gateway through Banner Services.  Updates must be made by Friday, September 5.

We realize that some students may want to change rooms within their suite, small house, or apartment. Please feel free to do this, but it is critical that you email reslife@dickinson.edu and tell us who is in what rooms. We must have an accurate housing roster and we also must know who has which keys to which room.  You may not make changes outside of your individual suite, small house, or apartment without permission from Residence Life & Housing.  There is a freeze on any room changes for the first two weeks of classes.

CSE would like to remind you that there will be recycling toters available at the Quads, Adams, and Drayer. Move-in is a great time to reduce your waste by bringing less, bringing reusable items, and recycling anything else.  When using the toters, please break down any cardboard boxes so that there is space for others to recycle their boxes. If you have any questions on sorting your recycling, please contact CSE directly at sustainability@dickinson.edu.

Travel safely back to Carlisle!
