In your email provide your name, NU ID, hall and room number along with the date you expect to arrive.

The following are examples of how our numbering system works:
Odd Numbered Floors: Room 305 = 3rd floor of the building (odd number).
Even Numbered Floors: Room 1002 = 10th floor of the building (even number).

Make Move In Easier:

  • Bring no more than two (2) vehicles per family on move-in day.
  • Parking lots will be quite full and, unless you are coming from a long distance, you may find it easier to make multiple trips over the course of the weekend.
  • This also allows you to see how much space is available in the room once everyone has moved in.
  • Don't bring everything. Bring only seasonal clothing and switch out the next time you go home.
