When you arrive on campus during your assigned move-in day and time, our staff will check you into your hall. In order to maintain a smooth and efficient move-in experience for the 1,000 students living in our residence halls, we are unable to take individual requests for specific move-in times or dates.
If you or a parent/guardian/family member require special accommodations (wheelchair accessibility, limited mobility), please feel free to contact the Office of Student Life at 740-376-4784 so that we may assist you.
First Year Students
The official move-in date for incoming first year students is Sunday, August 16, 2015.
If your last name begins with:
- A-L, your move-in time is 8:00 am-10:30 am.
- M-Z, your move-in time is 10:30am-1:00 pm.
The above guidelines are suggested times to help distribute on-campus and move-in traffic. Please do your best to follow the schedule.
Once you have your key go directly to the residence hall, unload your vehicle near the hall, after you have unloaded your car please move it to a regular parking lot. Office of Community Living staff members will provide you with instructions throughout the process and will assist you with the check-in process.
More information will be provided on the location and process of check-in.
Upper-Class Move In
Upper-class student move-in is on Sunday, August 23, 2014 from 9:00 am-5:00 pm.
Upper-class students should report to the Hermann Fine Arts Center to check in with staff members from the Office of Community Living.
Marietta College Police Officers and Office of Community Living staff members will provide additional instructions for the move-in process when you arrive to campus.
Early Arrival Dates
If you are scheduled to arrive to campus early due to a College-sponsored activity or an athletic team, your program coordinator will send you information regarding your arrival date and special instructions. We do ask that if you are not scheduled for an early arrival for a sponsored activity that you do not request to move-in prior to the major move-in dates. If you require an early move-in and are not part of a College-sponsored activity or an athletic team, there is a charge of $200 a day and you need to contact the Office of Student Life at 740-376-4784 to seek permission. Requests for an early arrival must be received by 4:00 pm on Wednesday, August 19, 2015. No exceptions to the fee or cut-off date will be provided.
