It adds residents moving in this fall are required to reserve a time-slot online, “to provide a socially distant and efficient Move-In experience.”

It encouraged first-year residents to select a time-slot on or before Aug. 20 so they can participate in Welcome Week events, and returning residents to move in on Aug. 21-23.
