Drop and Dash 2018

Beat the crowds, traffic, and lines! 

Move-in is day is a busy day. Beat the crowds and sign up for Drop & Dash today! 

The Drop & Dash program offers a convenient way for freshmen, transfer, and upperclass residents to drop off their belongings on the Saturday before Move-in to their assigned room prior to the official opening day.

By participating in Drop & Dash, residents and parents can lighten the burden of having to move in all of the student’s items at once. Instead, parents & students can focus more on getting everything unpacked and settled in on move-in day!

To sign-up for Drop & Dash, please visit our online payment and reservation page.

The last day to sign up is the Monday before the Drop & Dash date. Requests might not be taken after this time. 

Requests are granted based on when they are received, with only a limited number of slots due to summer staffing. Once you are signed up, please be on the lookout for a confirmation email with your scheduled drop off time. Confirmation emails will be sent out on August 15th.

There is $25 fee for Drop & Dash.

Please remember all requests for Drop & Dash are subject to the availability of the space the resident is moving into. If the fall semester space is not ready for a student by August 17th, due to construction, summer housing needs, or maintenance and housekeeping concerns, we may not be able to grant the request.
