Here are a couple items outlining the move-in process as we want to eliminate as much stress as possible—after all, you are here to HAVE FUN and LEARN!

  1. Please arrive at assigned time (see below). To ensure a smooth transition and traffic pattern on our campus, we will not allow you to unload your vehicles early unless you've made prior arrangements with the Assistant Director of Residence Life. This helps ensure our elevators are being utilized in an efficient manner.
  2. Your day will start inside Flaherty Community Room (204 Basile Hall) (map). Please enter the Prairie Drive Lot through the entrance by Basile Hall, as Mercy Drive will be closed during move in. (Follow the posted signs and you should be set!)
  3. Numerous campus departments will greet you in Flaherty. These wonderful folks are here to HELP YOU! Ask questions! You'll also recieve a packet with all your information regarding your move-in. PLEASE, DO NOT UNLOAD YOUR CARS HERE!
  4. At your slotted time, you will be greeted by Public Safety at the east end of the Prairie Drive Lot (by the Sacret Heart Convent) where your vehicle will be directed up Mercy Drive, to Regina Hall/University Center. This is where all students who live in Regina/McAuley will UNLOAD their vehicles. PLEASE KEEP THE DRIVER WITH THE VEHICLE AT ALL TIMES! » Traffic Flow Map
  5. Employees and students will be on site to help you move your items from your vehicle to your room. Please follow their direction in this area.
  6. Once your vehicle is unloaded, the driver will move the vehicle to either the parking lot in front of Andreas House or back to the Prairie Drive Lot.  We will have a courtesy shuttle in these areas to help people get the driver back to the group.
