No students will be permitted to remain on-campus during this time period unless they are part of an approved Early Arrival group. Check-in will take place in the Brower Student Center for students to pick-up their room keys. You can park in Lot 5 to get your keys and then report to your building to unload your belongings.  An overview on where to park is in the Parking Map linked below. 

There will be limited appointments available on both Thursday, August 22nd for First Year and Transfer students.
