In order to avoid as much congestion as possible on move-in day, please make sure that you arrive at your scheduled move-in time. If you arrive earlier than your scheduled time, you will be required to wait until your scheduled time slot. If you arrive later than your scheduled time, you may need to wait until move-in staff can accommodate you. Wait time could range up to 6-8 hours.

Large trucks (max clearance 6’8”), trailers, or recreational vehicles cannot be accommodated. Additional vehicles will be directed to the all day parking area (Lot 20) for unassisted unloading. Anyone moving their belongings from this lot may not have access to the elevators in their building.
  2. UNLOAD | Follow the route map and color-coded signs to the unloading area for your building. Turn the bottom portion of your parking tag in to the move-in staff and place the top portion on your rearview mirror or dashboard.
