Arriving on Campus/Opening of School

Houses open for returning students at noon on Sunday, February 21. The meal plan will begin with brunch on February 21, in the Dining Halls.

Key Pickup

  • Third Street and Welling will have keys taped to the back of the door.
  • Residents of all other houses have keys from last term.*

*If you have lost your key over FWT, please be in touch with Housing prior to arriving so a key can be made. The charge for a lost key is $55 and will be placed on student bills.

If there is inclement weather on Sunday, students are encouraged to travel on Monday as classes begin on Tuesday. Students will not be granted access to their rooms prior to noon on Sunday unless granted special permission, so please plan your travel accordingly. Note: Unapproved early arrivals will face disciplinary action as outlined in the Student Handbook.
