Drop and Dash 2020

Beat the crowds, traffic, and lines! 

Campus Move-in days are busy with lots of good energy, sun, and other people. COVID-19 has created an additional layer of complexity to campus processes, including our own. 

The Drop & Dash program offers a convenient way for all campus residents to drop off their belongings on the Sunday and Monday before Move-in to their assigned room.

Benefits of participating in Drop & Dash include:

  1. Getting belongings in the space early so that Move-In is easier on you and your guests
  2. Reduced interactions with others where six (6’) feet of distance is more difficult during Move-In
  3. Speeding up the Check-In process and focusing on setting your room up during Move-In

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 distancing and building density guidelines. 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 12th

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 12th, due to construction, summer housing needs, or maintenance and housekeeping concerns, we may not be able to grant the request.

You are however allotted ONE HOUR to move things in. If you finish before your hour is over then you are free to start setting things up.

Q: What if I don’t sign up in time?
A: We will try to accommodate you the best we can, but due to summer staffing, we will be taking each request on a first come, first served basis with those who have signed up having top priority.
