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.
There will be an Early Arrival Request form provided closer to the beginning of the next semester.
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.
