Arrival & Central Check-In

Central check-in (CCI) is your first stop when you arrive on campus for orientation.  It is required and you must complete the process before you proceed to your house. CCI is held at the Indoor Track and Tennis (ITT) Facility on West Street.

Central Check-In Schedule

Fall 2020 Update

As noted in President McCartney’s letter of August 5, 2020, the college announced that it will switch to a fully remote fall 2020 semester. 

Central Check-In is where you will receive the keys to your house and room, your college identification card (OneCard) and clearance from Health Services.

Once you have completed Central Check-In you will proceed to your house to move in. There you will be greeted by members of the Heads of New Students (HONS) and Residence Life staff members who will help you get settled. Find the ITT on the campus map.

Plan Ahead

If you will need overnight accommodations we suggest you book early, as there are several colleges and universities in the area and all hold orientation around the same time.
