Move-In Procedures

Ready to move into your residence hall?! Follow these steps to make the move-in process as easy and stress-free during Welcome Weekend. 

  1. Before you come to campus: Please make sure you have settled your account with the Business Office. In order to do this you’ll need to have accepted all loans and financial add awards; selected a payment plan; and made the appropriate payment as outlined on your student account.
  2. In addition, please make sure you’ve logged into BANNERWEB to update your emergency contact information and your allergy and medication information found under the “Personal Information” tab.
  3. Finally, please make sure you’ve verified that all your medical records are on file and current.  All these pre-arrival steps will ensure a smooth check-in process for you.

On Move-In Day

  1. Enter CBU through the gate on the Central Avenue side of campus. Once you pass the gate, turn left towards the big glass and brick building to check in! (students must stay in car while checking in with residence life staff)

  2. Receive your key and packet in front of Cooper Wilson building. However, if you HAVEN’T settled your account you won’t receive these items. If your account is NOT settled, take a stroll to the first floor of Barry Hall, and they’ll help get you settled.
  3. Wait for instructions from residence life staff at the check in area before you proceed. They’ll tell you where to go from here.
  4. Once you’ve received the go-ahead, exit campus through the Central gate and turn right onto Central Avenue. Then make another right turn onto East parkway. Look for the Maurelian gate on the right side. Look for the signs! Then pull forward to either the Maurelian or LLC parking lot
  5. Unload your belongings in the lot next to your assigned dorm. We’ve got lots of helpful upperclassmen to assist you as well!
  6. Once your car is unloaded and all your belongings are in your room, please remember to drive back to the Central lot where you first entered. You’ll be able to park here and move on to a great day of fun!
