First Year students will be able to access their room assignment and the name(s) of their roommate(s) in mid-July at>MyHousing@Elmhurst College .  It is not possible for you to visit or occupy your assigned room until your move-in date.

The Great Move-In is Wednesday, August 21, 2013 from 8 a.m. to noon. This is the day our First Year students arrive. To ease congestion that morning, traffic flow is redirected as the Great Move-In Map shows.

The following information will help your move-in to the Residence Halls run smoothly. 

  • 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.

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 Big Questions group and have your photo taken for the yearbook.  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.
