Check-In/Move-In Procedure

Late Arrivals

Residents who do not check-in during the designated time may forfeit their room assignment if the Office of Residence Life is not notified by calling 773-298-3977 by 5 p.m. the business day following move-in. Residents who check in after their designated time of any hall opening will be fined $25.

Early Arrivals

International students and out-of-state students (students who live beyond 400 miles of the campus) are expected to move in during the designated check in dates and times. Requests for individual considerations must be submitted through the Housing Accommodation Request Form through the Self-Service portal to the Office of Residence Life 10-days prior to arrival.

No-Show Policy

Students who do not arrive at the beginning of a new semester within 72 hours of the designated check-in time and have not made prior arrangements with the Office of Residence Life will be canceled from housing for the current term and will be assessed the cancellation penalty. Housing will not be guaranteed for the semester if the student is deemed a no-show.

Room Condition Reports (RCR Form)

Students must complete and submit a Room Condition Report Form within 72-hours of their arrival. A copy and receipt of this form will be given to each student for their reference. The RCR will be used to assess the condition of the students' assigned space for damages upon the students' move out. Students should follow the detailed instructions provided to insure accurate documentation.
