Drop and Run is designed to give students and parents the opportunity to ease stress by bringing personal belongings to campus prior to move-in day. Bringing everything early helps to expedite move-in and reduce delay times for elevators.

Drop and Run Dates

  • Drop and Run for new first time freshmen and transfer students begins one week prior to the start of Freshmen and Transfer Move-In.
  • Drop and Run for continuing students occurs during the week of Ramdition.
  • Approved students must meet the criteria described below and must sign up for a time and date.

Drop and Run Policies

  • You will have one hour to move your things into your room.
  • There will not be time to unpack or arrange your room during early drop off.
  • The early drop off is for your belongings 
  • If you come into town early, you must find an alternate location to stay (hotel/motel or friend/relative off campus) until move-in day.
