When you arrive at your residence hall 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 StudentsThe official move-in date for incoming first year students is Friday, August 23, 2013.
If your last name begins with:
- A-L, your move-in time is 8:00 am-10:30 am.

When you arrive to campus, you will need to immediately go to the Gathering Place on the corner of Seventh and Butler Streets to begin the enrollment verification process. You will not be able to check into your residence hall without first getting clearance at this event. Marietta College Police officers and Office of Community Living staff members will be available to assist in directing you to both the Gathering Place and to your residence hall. Once you are directed to approach your residence hall, unload your vehicle near the hall, and while someone stays with your belongings, please move you car 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.

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, there is a charge of $50 a day and you need to contact the Office of Student Life at 740-376-4874 to seek permission.
