Move In for Living Learning Community Residents ONLY
10 a.m.-4 p.m. - Ruston Hall and O'Bannon Hall
There will be volunteers and signage to direct students and families to Parking Lot E for LLC check in. You will check in from the comfort of your vehicle. Students need to have their Eagle Access Card ready (so don't pack it away in a box). Students will get their room key and USI swag at check in. After that students and families will be directed to the circle drive in front of O'Bannon or Ruston. There will be volunteers to help unload your vehicle. Once the vehicle is unloaded, one member of the family must move the vehicle out of the circle drive to the parking lot. Volunteers will assist in moving the student’s items to their room. LLC students are encouraged to move in during this scheduled time as there are activities planned for them later that day. If for some reason, a student cannot move in during the scheduled time on Wednesday, August 14, please contact Housing and Residence Life to let staff know when you plan to arrive.
