Fall Move-In Information

Please refer to the information provided below or print out this handy copy of CSB Move-In Newsletter when making your move in plans. If there is a question not answered here, please feel free to contact the Residential Life Office!

When can I move in?

All returning students living in Lottie, Margretta, Brian, the campus apartments and the campus houses are strongly encouraged to return to campus on Saturday, August 29th or Sunday, August 30th.

Note: If you (or your coach/supervisor) submitted an early arrival request, you should have received a separate email with instructions on what to do when you arrive. Summer residents also should have received information about the move from summer housing to academic year housing.

On August 27th, please keep in mind that you should not drive into the CSB Security Circle to go to the bookstore, check your mail, etc., as this is where first-year students will be unloading.  Early arrivals should park in Lot 12 until halls open on August 29.

Where do I get my keys?

Keys will be available in the office for your building/area during the hours listed below:

  • August 29th - 30th - 9:00 am to 3:00 pm

Office Locations:

Margretta & Brian Hall: RD Office, Brian Hall

Early Arrival Requests and Information:

Returning Students should plan to move in on Saturday and Sunday, August 29th and 30th, 2015.

If there is an extenuating circumstance and you need to arrive prior to these dates, please submit a request to arrive early. This request must be submitted NO LATER than August 1st, 2015! You will receive an email response from us letting you know the status of your request and appropriate check-in details.

Note that coaches and supervisors have already made arrangements for students needing to arrive early for intercollegiate athletics or on-campus employment. The same is true for students arriving early due to clubs and various welcoming activities. Students approved for early arrivals should have received a separate email with instructions for key pick up from this office.

Early return requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis and are generally approved due to distance to campus (coming from 4 or more hours away) or other extenuating circumstances.  You are STRONGLY discouraged from arriving to campus prior to Saturday, August 29th, 2015.
