Check-In information for August 2016
New first year students are automatically pre-registered for Orientation, but it is necessary to check in on Tuesday, August 16, so that you can pick up your final Orientation schedule, t-shirt, and other important materials.
Check-In will be held from 9am-6:00pm On Tuesday, August 16, 2016 at the Orientation Welcome Center and Resource Fair, held in the Gordon Field House and Activities Center, first floor. Commuter students are recommended to check in on Tuesday as well.
If you are unable to check in on move-in day, you may check in the day after in the Gordon Field House. This option is only for those who cannot check in move-in day.
First year students living in the residence halls, and their families, should check in at the Welcome Center immediately after they move in. Follow the move-in instructions from your Housing Confirmation. Before you unload your vehicle you will receive a detailed list of next steps. It is imperative to follow these steps to ensure a smooth transition for you and your family on Move-In Day. If you have an afternoon move in time and prefer to check in at the Welcome Center and attend the Resource Fair first, please enter campus via River Road and park in Lot U and when you are finished, retrieve your car and get into line for the move-in process.
Commuter students are recommended to check in for Orientation on move-in day but may check in the day after if they cannot attend Tuesday. All residential students will move in on move-in day, so coming to campus this day is optional for commuter students; however, we strongly encourage you and your family to check in anyway and attend the Resource Fair which is only taking place that day. You will need to enter campus via River Road and park in Lot U to avoid the traffic from students who are moving into their residence halls.
Transfer students living in the residence halls, RIT apartments, RIT Inn, or off-campus housing should check in for Orientation on Tuesday, August 16. Follow your move-in instructions from your Housing Confirmation.
