Sign Up for Your Move-In Time Slot

Students who have not already arrived on campus as a part of a pre-arrival program or as a fall term athlete for pre-season training may move into their College House on the morning of Saturday, August 27. 

Before you arrive, you’ll need to choose a time slot for your arrival based on your College House. Move-in times start at 9 a.m. and end by 12:45 p.m.

If you’re not sure of your College House, please reach out to

Orientation Begins

After check-in, students and families then proceed directly to their residence hall to move in before formal student and family orientation activities start in the early afternoon. In grand F&M tradition, afternoon schedule includes separate and joined welcome activities for students and their families including Dean's Welcome, Crew Meetings, House Inductions, the Lux et Lex Walk and the Bell Toll send off! 

Students will have access to their full orientation schedules through an app called Guidebook, which they should download in August before coming to campus. Keep an eye on your email account — a link to Guidebook will be sent about a week before move-in.
