Move In Information

Check in for new students will be on Sunday, August 24th, 2014 from 9am to 2:30pm.  

All students will pick up their keys in the main lobby of the residence hall in which they have been assigned housing.  

To facilitate a speedy unloading process, we will have over 300 upper-class students awaiting your arrival. They will unload your car and move your belongings to your room!  Please make sure your name and room number are on the boxes, as this is a busy day/location, and (sometimes) possessions are misplaced to the wrong room.   


If you should arrive after 2:30pm on August 24th and have notified the office of the late arrival, you may pick up your key at Campus Police (located in the Founders Hall basement).  If you come on a day outside of August 24th you can pick up your keys at Residential Services during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm) or at Campus Police after hours and on weekends.  


Failure to pick up a key does not release a student from the housing contract.

If you have decided not to attend WPI or will not be living in on-campus housing, please notify the Office of Residential Services immediately at
