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.
This summer the City of Marietta has several street projects that may affect your arrival to campus. Pike Street, Greene Street and 7th Street are under construction. If you plan to exit Interstate 77 at exit #1 you may experience some long delays.
