Early Arrival Group Request

Student organizations that need to have members of their group arrive on campus earlier than the posted opening date of 8:00 am, Friday, August 23, 2019 must submit this Early Arrival Request Form with their Vice President’s signature/approval and an electronic student roster to Residence Life by Monday, July 1, 2019.

Please note an important change for fall 2019: All groups approved to return early are required to assist with Move-in Day on Friday, August 23.

The request form will be reviewed jointly by the Vice President for the group’s area and Residence Life.

PLEASE NOTE: Approved student groups can move in no sooner than August 7, 2019.

We cannot accommodate early arrivals on Thursday, August 22 or Friday, August 23. If your group needs to be on campus at this time, you will need to arrange an arrival time prior to these dates.

We are also unable to accommodate students who arrive earlier than their approved time.

Policy for students not approved to arrive early

Returning students not affiliated with a campus organization who request to return to University residence halls earlier than the posted opening date of 8:00 am Sunday, August 25, 2019, will not be approved.

Emergencies Only

If an emergency arises that requires you to adjust move-in dates and times, you will need to contact the Residence Life Office at 336.278.7300 as soon as possible prior to your arrival. Emergencies are family distress such as severe sickness or a family death. Requests that are not emergencies are unloading the car before move-in day, arriving early, or a suitemate/roommate has already moved in, etc.

If you have questions, please contact Residence Life at residencelife@elon.edu, 336-278-7300 or in Jackson Hall 103 in the Global Neighborhood.
