Early Arrival Requests and Information:

Returning Students should plan to move in on Saturday and Sunday, August 29th and 30th, 2020.

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! We cannot make any additional early arrival arrangements after that date.  You will receive an email response from us letting you know the status of your request and appropriate check-in details.

Early return requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis and are generally approved due to distance from campus (coming from four or more hours away), athletics, or other extenuating circumstances.  You are STRONGLY discouraged from arriving to campus prior to Saturday, August 29th as services such as food services, facilities in the Haehn Campus Center, transportation and other amenities will be very limited. 

Note that while coaches and supervisors have already notified Residential Life of students needing to arrive early for intercollegiate athletics or on-campus employment, ALL students needing to return to campus prior to August 24th must submit an Early Arrival Request form. This form can be found on the CSB/SJU Housing Portal.
