Early Arrival Information
The Office of Residence Life understands that there are some circumstances where it may become necessary for a student to arrive on campus before the residence halls officially open. Requests for early arrivals may be granted on a case-by-case basis for extenuating circumstances. There is a fee of $50 per day for early arrival.
The official opening of the residence halls for the Spring 2018 Semester is early in January 2018. Early Arrival Requests for the spring semester can be submitted during the fall semester.
If you need to submit an Early Arrival Request due to extenuating circumstances, please fill out the Early Arrival Request Form.
Please note that the submission of a request DOES NOT mean that you are approved to arrive early, an email notifying you of your request status will be sent to your student email.
Please note that the following are not reasons that will be accepted or approved for early move arrival: flights prior to the opening of the residence halls, scheduled vacations that interfere with move-in dates, work conflicts, not having a chance to pack, etc.
Students who are required to arrive on campus prior to the official opening of campus due to campus employment, Badger Connection or athletics do not need to submit an early arrival request. This will be done by the student’s supervisor or athletic department.
