Early Arrival Policy

Elon University does not permit students to arrive to their campus residence prior to the designated move-in day. We understand, however, that there are students who may need to arrive early to campus due to their involvement in leadership positions within student organizations, orientation events, varsity athletic programs, or other matters of university business. Arrangements will be made for those students by the appropriate advisor or coach. These advisors and coaches will contact the students about their arrival date and time. Any student who moves into their housing assignment before opening day and is not approved will be assessed an early arrival fee of $25 per day charge and face disciplinary proceedings. In addition, the student allowing an unapproved student into the facility will also be charged a fine and face disciplinary proceedings.

Note: Greek Housing does not make exceptions to this policy.
