Moving

Are there carts available for moving in? 

There are a limited number of carts available during move-in, available on a first request basis. 

Can I move-in early? 

Students needing to move-in early may fill out the Early Arrival Form to request permission. Approval is given on a case-by-case basis. 

My parents will be helping me move-in. Is there guest housing available?

Unfortunately, no.  There are several local hotels nearby; however, depending on whether or not move-in overlaps other local events such as the NASCAR race in Bristol, you may need to make hotel arrangement very early. 

Where do we park for move-in? Are the parking lots close to the halls? 

Parking information will be posted close to the move-in date as it changes each fall. Information concerning move-in can be found here
