On-Campus Students

  1. In late August you will receive an email confirming your move-in time (you are allowed to move-in at that time only).
  2. That same email will include a vehicle permit, which must be printed & displayed on your dashboard when arriving to campus.  
  3. Campus Safety & Security will direct your vehicle upon arrival.
  4. After you receive your room key, begin moving your belongings in immediately.
  5. Additional JWU staff will be stationed around campus to answer questions & give directions.

Helpful Notes: Many families bring hand trucks, rolling containers or other means to make the process easier. Plan ahead for the weather & dress for the day. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes! All family members & guests should expect to do some walking (buildings & parking areas are not adjacent).

Reminder: Read through the information that Residential Life provided with your room assignment.

Commuting Students

While you have no scheduled activities on Saturday, you are expected to participate in all First-Year Kick-Off Events on Sunday.

On that day, you’ll meet up with your Pack Leaders from Off Campus Student Services & see friends you made during Orientation as well as all new Wildcats!
