Maximizing Drop & Go

Use your timeslot to see your room and drop off belongings. Unpack and decorate when you return for Move-In. Consider coordinating your timeslot with your roommate (same day/time).

While you're on campus, use this time to:

  • Pick up your textbooks and tech gear with special store hours at Barnes & Noble and the Campus Computer Store.
  • Take measurements (if needed) for additional items you anticipate bringing.
  • Make a list of items that you need to get prior to Move-In.

What Items Should I Bring?

We recommend bringing the big, bulky items such as:



Mini Fridge



You will have time to do minimal setup in the room, so this is a good chance to assemble the futon and arrange the room in a way that's going to work for you. Doing these things will save you time and stress when you move in.


Students will be eligible to choose one timeslot (times listed below). Participation is optional.

Stadium Heights residents do not need to sign-up for a Drop & Go timeslot. Fall residents may show up anytime between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on either day.

9-11 a.m.

1-3 p.m.
