before arrival

  • Sign-up for your arrival timeslot. Housing and Residence Life would have emailed your UDayton email with the sign-up link (on or around July 6th)
  • Upload your photo for your UD ID to Porches if you have not already picked it up
  • Complete your Post-Orientation Homework on Porches (including your Community Education Modules)

ARRIVING ON CAMPUS

  • There are specific routes for each residence hall to follow to expedite the move-in process. These routes are different from normal campus traffic flow.
  • When you arrive in front of your residence hall, volunteers will direct you to an unloading spot.
  • The driver needs to stay with the vehicle at all times so that as soon as the car is empty, it can be driven to the appropriate parking lot.
  • Blue carts will be available to help with moving items in, but feel free to bring your own dollies or handtrucks.
  • Once you have unloaded, please refrain from rejoining a move-in line… give everyone their timeslot to drop off!
  • Once you get to the Brown St. and E Stewart St., turn off your G.P.S. and follow the routes outlined below (as traffic flows differently on move-in day)

Hang tags and the directional signs are color coded to ensure an easy trip to your residence hall front door. Please print the hangtag associated with your hall and hang it on your car rearview mirror!

For those living on above the 3rd floor, we encourage you to use the elevator up and take the stairs down. Anyone with accessibility issues will be permitted to use the elevator, but note that there may be a wait to use the elevator with the increased traffic.
