Move-in Day is Wednesday, August 24, 2016 

Transfer students may move in on Tuesday, August 23. Upperclassmen may move in Saturday, August 27 - Sunday, August 28.

There are several things you'll need to check off your list before you arrive at Carlow. Please read over the Pre-Move-in Checklist. For a list of what can and cannot be brought into the residence halls, please refer to the Resident Hall FAQs.

Check In

Look for the check-in tent located outside Frances Warde Hall. All new students can pick up their housing key and student ID, as well as complete any forms. 

The Celtic Crew will be there to help you! Made up of students and staff, the Celtic Crew will assist you with unloading and moving in your things, as well as give you some guidance if you have any questions. They will place everything in carts and take things up to your room so you don't have to worry about hauling it all by yourself.


During first-year student Move-In Day, a valet attendant will move your vehicle to Lot C after it is unloaded. 

When you are ready to leave, stop at the check-in tent or dispatch to retrieve your keys. Make sure to have your ticket so they can match your number to your keys. Once you have received your keys you can proceed to walk up to Parking Lot C located at the top of our campus.

Lot C is located on Terrace Street, opposite the intersection of Chesterfield Rd.
