Fall 2019 Move-in and Early Arrival Information for Students



We are looking forward to welcoming you to campus!  Our goal is to provide a positive check-in experience for each student.  In order for our staff to be best prepared for your arrival, we set up check-in times for each group listed below. Please do not arrive outside of your designated check-in time. Check below to find your time!

Please make travel plans well in advance in order to comply with the established times. If you need to request an alternate check-in time, you can do so by contacting Anne Yantes, Interim Director of Residence Life at stlife@umary.edu.

All of the check-in times scheduled before August 31 will take place at Clairmont Center for the Performing Arts. It is located in the heart of campus, connected to the Miller Center and Arno Gustin Hall, and directly across the parking lot from the Fieldhouse. Look for the circular driveway and flagpole. Residence Life staff will be inside.

Early Arrivals 

Requests to check-in early will be considered for approval on a case-by-case basis. If your request is approved, you will be assessed $40/day for each day you stay on campus in advance of your designated check-in date. If your request is submitted less than 72 hours from your assigned arrival date and time, you will be assessed a $50 late request for daily housing fee + $40/day.

 
Meal Plans
Meal plans do NOT start before the semester begins. If you arrive early, be prepared to purchase any meals you eat unless you are part of a group or team that will be providing meals.
 
Fees and Penalties
We want to avoid having you pay fees for the following penalties:

• Improper Check-in fee ($50) –- Assessed if a student moves into his/her student residence without being checked-in by a member of the residence life staff.  Please do not move in, even if your roommate is already there.  You will need to check-in first.
 
• Re-cleaning fee ($50) – Assessed if a student residence needs to be re-cleaned in order to get the room back into move-in condition after one student has moved in.  Please keep your roommate’s space clean and free of belongings, so it is ready for him/her to move in.

• Unauthorized guest ($250 + $40/day) – A hefty price to pay to allow someone who is not authorized by the University to stay in your student residence. If you have a friend or family member of the same gender visit, you need to register him/her in advance with your residence director.
