Unloading Your Vehicle
Following the unloading of your vehicle, students will proceed to check-in to their facility while family members park their vehicles. Safety and Security will be out on the road directing traffic and guiding you to the appropriate locations.
The procedures for unloading your vehicles is really simple and we guide you through the entire process. When arriving to campus, you’ll want to pull along side of the road near the white tents available for move-in. Students and their families should use the map with directions provided in the Move-in Schedule for exact locations.
To make moving in as easy as possible, each building has a supply of red handcarts as well as orange carts that students and their families can use to transport their things from their car to their room.

A Checklist for Moving to Your New Home
PREPARING TO MOVE TO your new home seems like a relatively simple task – until you actually take stock of everything you own and consider both what to pack and what to leave behind. The process gets even more complicated when you factor in the opening and closing of utility accounts, cleaning and the additional planning required to get your household from point A to point B. When possible, it’s best to start planning for your move more than a month in advance – even if you don’t yet have the address of your next home.
Take stock of your belongings. Take a walk through your home and create three lists of furniture and appliances: those you know you’re taking, those you will definitely leave behind and those that you haven’t decided on yet. To get an accurate estimate of the cost of your move, include all the items on the “yes” and “maybe” lists when you consider the size of truck needed and total weight of your belongings.
Contact movers and get estimates. If you’re moving in the summer, you should make initial contact with moving companies at least six weeks in advance. The rest of the year, four weeks is often enough time, but earlier is always better. “The majority of people we talk to don’t know when they’re moving – they’re still trying to sell their house or buy a house,”
Begin collecting packing supplies. Start collecting boxes, bubble wrap, packing paper and tape in advance so you have it on hand for packing. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s safer to buy new boxes rather than rely on Craigslist or your local stores for used boxes
Verify your new location and the date you’ll be moving. By a month out, you’ve hopefully set either a closing date or a lease start date for your new home. As soon as this information is available, contact your mover to provide the information and confirm if this changes the expected cost of the move.
Book a self-moving truck if needed. If you would rather complete the process yourself, it’s still a good idea to book a moving truck and rental materials as soon as you know your moving day to ensure you have access to the vehicle.
Should I Empty the Drawers Before Moving my Dresser?
Should you empty drawers before moving a dresser? Customers often ask us this question. The answer is often no. We can move your dresser loaded. A full dresser is heavy. But, if you don’t unload its contents, you save time. You’ll also open up space in the moving van.
However, like many things in life, the devil is in the details. It’s safer to unpack a dresser before moving it in some situations. Before moving a dresser, we’ll evaluate the situation. We look at the type of dresser and what’s in the drawers. If it’s not safe to move the chest loaded, we’ll empty the drawers and pack the items in separate boxes.
Is the Dresser Sturdy?
You don’t need to empty the draws of a well-built dresser in good shape. What makes a dresser strong? The drawers and frame should be solid. The joints and corners of the piece should be stable. A sturdy dresser is often heavy and made of solid wood
If you lift the dresser, and it feels flimsy, empty the drawers before moving it. If the dresser is fragile or old, full drawers will stress it. The wood might crack or the piece break apart when it’s in motion.
Do You Have the Strength?
If you’re moving yourself, be sure you have the strength to carry a bulky, heavy piece. You’ll have to keep the dresser upright if the drawers are loaded. Plan ahead to determine how you’ll get the piece through doors and down stairs.
