Helpful Check In Tips

  • We strongly encourage you to not arrive until check in opens. There is no need to stand outside a locked building in the dark!  Instead start the day off right with a great breakfast at one of the local restaurants.
  • Dress appropriately.  The art of layering is key to Ithaca survival!
  • Bring some snacks to keep your energy high.
  • Just like any large event, please expect traffic and some lines.  We have been coordinating check-in for many years and constantly adapt our processes to create a smooth experience for everyone.
  • Want to avoid lines?  Come in the afternoon...there will still be plenty of time to get settled, meet your new residential community, and shop for last minute supplies.
  • Residential life staff will be located in every building and in the area offices to assist with any questions you have on this day!
