When Do I Move In?

Fall Term 2016
First-year students (transfer and returning students move-in date and time is listed below) can begin moving in on Wednesday, August 24, 2016 from 8:00 a.m.–Noon. To ease congestion and confusion on what can be a hectic and exciting day, please take a moment to review the First-Year Student Move-In Game Plan to help insure everyone's move-in goes as smoothly as possible. Also, to ease traffic congestion that morning, the flow of traffic will be redirected, as the move-in map indicates. Once you have arrived at the College, please proceed to your assigned residence hall where you will be able to check-in.

  • First-year students will be able to access their room assignment and the name(s) of their roommate(s) in mid-July by visiting my.elmhurst.edu and clicking on MyHousing@Elmhurst College. It is not possible for first year students to visit or occupy assigned rooms until the specific move-in date and time.
  • Transfer students can move in on Friday, August 26, 2016 from 8:00–11:00 a.m.
  • Returning students (including previous commuter students) move in on Sunday, August 28, 2015 from 9:00 a.m.–Noon. Apartment and house residents should check in at Prospect Apartments, Unit 1. Residence Hall residents should check in at their hall.
