Spring 2019 Move-In Day:

New Students can move in on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 11am

Returning Students can move back in on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 3pm

Move-in Instructions: 

Students assigned to RA, RB and RC, when you arrive on campus, please report directly to your residence hall. Once you arrive to your assigned building, you will pull into the loop and unload your belongings. Check-in tables will be located in the main floor of buildings A, B, and C and in the 2nd floor lounge of Shapero Hall. Staff will be available to help direct you when you arrive and assist you with your move-in day needs.

ALL STUDENTS, both new residents and returners, need to check-in with the hall staff prior to arriving at their rooms.

Things to Do Before You Arrive:

As you prepare your packing, please visit our website for details about what to bring and what not to bring. There are two lists, one for suite style (RA, RB, RC) and one for traditional housing (Shapero Hall).

If you have not yet picked up your Student ID, you can visit the LazerCard office located in the Gordon Student Center.

Label ALL of your belongings with your name, building and room number, and your Student ID number.

Helpful Tips:

Student Central is open during Move-In Day from 8:30am-4:30pm. Please ensure that you have all of your financial aid, payment plans, and student information up-to-date by visiting Student Central (located in the Gordon Student Center). You can also sign a Records Release with a family member or support person, talk to an Enrollment Associate about your classes, and get your questions about OCC answered at Student Central.

RAs (Resident Assistants) are student leaders who live in the residence halls and who are resources that students living in the residence halls can reach out to.

If you would like to change your furniture orientation or bunk/debunk your beds, please reach out to your RA who will contact a member of facilities. Facilities is planning on moving furniture for students throughout the first two weeks of classes so please be patient as we work to accommodate your requests.

Students wishing to request a Housing Accommodation must do so through the Office of Accessibility Resources. Residence Life works with OAR to see what modifications we can make to encourage student success.
