For most complexes, upon arrival at your check-in location, you will meet with the Resident Assistants assigned to the check-in table.

• You will sign in to the building and fill out all necessary paperwork required and receive the items you will need for the year:

o You will receive a copy of your room condition report with instructions for use, and a booklet of resident resources.

o You will receive your key and sign your key receipt

  • Rowan Boulevard residents will be asked to sign paperwork confirming they received their bedroom pin code and mailbox combination
    o You will receive your welcome packet with information regarding your building, how to submit work orders, RCR information, a lanyard, etc.
  • Holly Pointe Commons residents will proceed directly to your room once your vehicle is unloaded in the parking lot unloading zone. Your check in packet will be waiting for you in your room. It will contain housing paperwork such as your room condition report and resident resource booklet with important information. You will be instructed to re-located your unloaded vehicle to more distant campus parking lots, which will be serviced by a shuttle to assist you in getting back to your building, to allow for the next vehicles a chance to unload for their move in process. More specific details about this process will be sent to Holly Pointe Commons’ resident email addresses.

• Students are then free to move in and set up their room.

  • Rowan Boulevard, Whitney Center, and Holly Pointe Commons residents must arrive during their staging area arrival appointment time. Vehicles will be escorted/directed to the appropriate unloading zone to unpack your vehicle as quickly as possible. Because of limited space, only 1 vehicle for each resident will be permitted into each unloading zone. This will be strictly enforced.
  • Once your vehicle is unloaded, you will be directed to move it to a parking area further away, to allow space for other students to park as close to the building as possible to unload. Shuttle service will be available from parking lots back to the buildings once vehicles are re-located after the unloading process.

• A limited supply of rolling bins will be supplied for loan at each check-in location. Again, supplies are limited, so please make necessary accommodations to gather any items you feel necessary to assist moving your items in prior to the date of move-in. Bringing your own hand truck, for example, is encouraged to get belongings from your vehicle to your building. Only Rowan Blvd, Whitney, Holly Pointe Commons and Triad have elevators.

For new students:

• The following items must be completed prior to you moving in:

o Your fall bill must be paid – See the Bursar’s Office with any additional questions (856-256-4150) or online.
o You must have all vaccination paperwork in to Health Services – See Health Services with any additional questions (856-256-4333) or online.
