Before you get to Mines

    • Label everything (bags/boxes/large itemes/etc.) with your Name, Building Name and Room Number clearly written in large, black marker. For example: Mines Student, Morgan 313. This is really important to help us get your items to your room!!!
    • Make sure the people accompanying you on Move-In day know your building and room number so they can find you!
    • Communicate with your roommates! What are you each bringing? How will you share? How will you handle guests? Sleep schedules? The rules?


Move-In Day

You will check in at your Residence Hall.

      • Go directly to your hall and park briefly in an unloading zone
      • You, the Mines student, will head towards your check-in area to pick up your keys and many other important items
      • The people accompanying you (or at least one person) will stay with the vehicle until it is unloaded, then they will take it to park it in long term parking. Maps and way-finding will be emailed out soon, or you can check back here to find more information. No vehicles can be left unattended!!!
      • Several Mines student volunteers will help you move your belongings into your new room, but they won’t know where to go unless you’ve labeled everything really well!

Additional information will be sent to you via email regarding housing, move-in and other important details.
