Move In Day: Friday, August 29, 2014

Please note, one of the most important tasks for you to do prior to August 29: check your status online at drew.edu/status. If you have unfinished items on your check list, you will not be permitted to move into your residence hall until the items are resolved.

Resident Students!
When you arrive on August 29, 2014…

When resident students arrive on campus, Drew University Public Safety and campus signage will direct you to our Lancaster Road campus entrance. All resident students (and their parents/family members) must enter campus via this designated entrance. Once your vehicle reaches Tilghman House, you (just the new Drew Student!) will be asked to hop out of your car and check in at the New Student Orientation Check-In Tent. While you check-in, your car will be directed to pull around and wait for you in another section of the parking lot – we encourage all students to have someone else in the driver seat to help us move things along as quickly as we can!

Recommendation: We also recommend labeling all of your bags and boxes with your hall and room number, as we have our Drew Move-In Crew on site to help unload your car. If your items are labeled, it will allow us to deliver all of your items directly to your room.

This year we are proud to announce that Bed, Bath & Beyond will be hosting a tent sale outside of the Brown Hall during move in day, 8/29. They will have an inventory that includes the following and will accept cash and credit cards.

Move In Schedule: August 29, 2014

First year and transfer students who are living on campus will move into the residence halls on this day. We coordinate the move in process for over 400 new students, therefore, it is a carefully managed and planned process! Please be sure to stick to your assigned move in time!

* We also encourage you to speak with your roommate(s) prior to Move In Day in order to coordinate details concerning items you may wish share for the upcoming year!

Drew University is thrilled to welcome you and your family to your first official day on campus as a Drew University student!

Please note, you absolutely must check your clearance status online at drew.edu/status and finalize all holds to your account. If you are not cleared by August 29, you will not be permitted to move into your residence hall.
