Move In Day Information for New Students
In July you will receive an email link to check your Fast Track Status. This status will indicate where you start your check in process on Move In Day. If you have completed all the check in requirements, your Fast Track will indicate that you may go directly to your residence hall. However, if you have not completed all the check in requirements, you will start at the Welcome Center to complete one or more required tasks before you move in.
- The Welcome Center, located in Thrift Library, is a one-stop shop where you will find:
- The Financial Aid Office
- Campus Safety
(IDs and Parking Permits)
- Health Center
- In order to make the day as smooth as possible, please check in during your designated time based on your housing assignment:
- 9:00 am-11:00 am New students assigned to one of the following areas in their residence hall:
- 100 level room (first floor)
- 300 level room (third floor)
- All Stringer Commons residents
- 11:00 am-1:00 pm New Students assigned to one of the following ears in their residence hall:
- 200 level room (second floor)
- Ground or lower level room (ex. G12 or 012)
- All Village residents (1st-3rd floor private rooms)
In order to make your check in process as smooth as possible, please be sure to complete the following things before arrival:
Housing Registration for New Students
Follow these steps to register for campus housing.
Step 1. Pay your Enrollment Deposit
You may only sign up for housing after you have paid your enrollment deposit. Please contact your admissions counselor to complete this step. We give preference to students who deposit prior to May 1, so get your deposit in as soon as possible.
Step 2. Complete the AU Housing Agreement
You must complete the online Housing Agreement in order to secure campus housing. This will be submitted electronically to the Residence Life office. We will not accept any paper forms, faxes, or scanned documents.
If you already know who you would like to live with, you will have the opportunity to indicate your roommate(s) preferences in the Housing Agreement. Please keep in mind that we only honor mutual roommate requests so make sure your potential roommate also selects you.
Please indicate in your Housing Agreement the building(s) that you would prefer to live in. You will notice that only those buildings matching your gender and student classification will appear as options in the Housing Agreement. If you want more information about each building, you can find floor plans and pictures in the Residence Hall section. Although we cannot make any guarantees regarding building assignments, we will do our best to place you in one of your top choices.
Once we receive your online Housing Agreement, we will begin the process of determining your room assignment. Room and roommate selections are prioritized according to when you submitted your Enrollment Deposit with the University. New students for Fall 2014 should receive housing assignments and roommate contact information during the month of July.
We look forward to having you join our on-campus housing community! If you have any questions, please feel free to visit our Frequently Asked Questions page or contact the Residence Life Office.
