All other new students, both first-years and transfers, should plan to arrive at the Dorsey Center Courtyard for check-in on Wednesday, August 24, 2016.  Arrival times are delineated by house assignment, so please check the schedule below for both your residence hall and house.  You are welcome to check in at any time after your scheduled time and before 3 p.m.  We do ask that you arrive at or after your assigned time to minimize the length of your move-in process.  The check-in times are as follows:

Athletes and international students already on campus will need to check in at the Dorsey Center as well.  The Fall Orientation for students will begin at 3:30 p.m. and is mandatory for all new students.  A concurrent Family Orientation will also begin at 3:30 in Kraushaar Auditorium. 

A detailed schedule of orientation sessions will be given to students and families at check-in.  Fall Orientation will run from the evening of Wednesday, August 24 through Sunday, August 28.  Classes begin on Monday, August 29.For questions or additional information, feel free to contact the Office of Student Engagement (410-337-6124) or email  

The Office of Residential Life will have evening hours and storage hours for the following dates to better accommodate students returning to campus for the fall semester. If you arrive when the Office of Residential Life is closed, your key may be picked up at the Office of Public Safety. Please make sure you are returning to campus on your approved date, as keys will not be available before then.
