Please take a moment to review the First-Year Student Move-In Game Plan, as it will help insure that moving in to the Residence Halls goes as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
Have your student's hall and room number handy when you drive up.
Campus Security and football team members will guide you to a temporary stopping place.
One family member or friend stays with the car at all times and unloads items onto the curb.
Once items are removed from the vehicle, move the vehicle to a permanent parking spot.
Student goes to obtain the check-in packet and keys.
Student goes to room, reviews and signs the RCR (Room Condition Report) noting any additions and completes any other paperwork needed to check-in.
Return RCR and paperwork to the RA (Resident Adviser) on your floor.
Remaining family members or friends and Jay Crew members will move items from the curb to the room.
All boxes should go the the vehicle or to dumpsters. Green dumpsters are provided for recycling.
Check-in for Orientation in the Frick Center and review the schedule.
The following groups of people will aid your move-in experience:
Elmhurst College Campus Security Officers: Staff in blue uniforms who will guide you to the correct residence halls and a permanent parking spot.
Football team: Student volunteers who will move your student's belongings from the vehicle/curb to the residence hall room.
You and your family may spend the rest of the morning exploring the campus before you enjoy lunch on the Campus Mall. Following lunch there is Family Welcome in the Chapel while you check in for your Orientation group and have your photo taken for your College ID, the Jay Pass. After that, Orientation begins. Orientation is an opportunity for you to get to know each other, the campus community, the City of Elmhurst and the Chicago metropolitan area.
