Frequently Asked Questions about Our Move-In Process

General FAQs

Due to health and safety precautions, IC is limiting the items students can bring when they move in. We are requesting that students moving in to traditional residential halls pack two suitcases and a backpack. Students moving in to apartments may bring two additional boxes of items.

​​​​​​The Office of Residential Life will communicate with each of you and provide guidance to you the week of August 17th. Note that a variety of factors will play a role in deciding which student goes where (academics, timing, building occupancy, etc.).

Yes. Students should obtain a COVID-19 test approximately 14 days prior to coming to campus and self-quarantine for 14 days prior to arriving on campus, even if they test negative for COVID. Those who have screened negative and completed a self-quarantine for 14 days in a non-travel advisory state can proceed to campus.

Unfortunately no. No exceptions will be granted.

We have provided details about the phased move-in plan for you to follow. More information will be shared the week of August 17th (after the completion of room assignments). 

We are finalizing packing and storing on campus. Once completed, we will place the student's items in their fall housing assignment. 

If students voluntarily study 100% remote at home for the fall, their housing will be removed for he Fall semester. Students will need to follow the housing process for the Spring semester to register for a room.  Residential Life cannot hold their space and "reserve" it for their return in the spring.  For students who cannot return based on their travel advisory states, their housing is being held since they could return at any time if their state is removed from the list. 

Yes, you can rent or bring your own. If you are considering renting from Refrigerator Leasing Company, we encourage you submit a request early as the company is working to have them pre-delivered to residence hall rooms. Learn more about your options here.
