When You Arrive
Students living on campus should proceed to their assigned residence hall first. Move-in begins at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 21. After you have moved in, proceed to the Student Activities Center before 12:00 p.m. to check in. If you have questions about the move-in process, contact the Housing Office.
Students living off campus should proceed directly to check-in at the Student Activities Center.
Check-in will take place on Tuesday, May 21 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Student Activities Center, which is located on the third floor of 921 Boylston Street. If you are an international student, you must bring your Form I-20, passport, and I-94 card (stapled inside your passport).
The check-in process will take 15-30 minutes. After you are successfully checked in, you will receive an orientation schedule, a student ID, and additional resources. You will also be cleared to receive a laptop computer* on May 21 and your course schedule on Friday, May 24 at your peer advisor meeting.
If you are not successfully checked in, you will not be cleared to receive a laptop computer or a course schedule until you have successfully completed your business.
*Note: 12-Week Only students are NOT required to purchase a laptop.
