Early/Late Arrival Information

Students are expected to arrive on their scheduled move-in date. 

Freshmen floor meetings will occur the evening of the assigned building move-in day. During this meeting, critical housing information is provided and students are introduced to housing staff. Freshmen are discouraged from Late Arrivals.
 
When you move in on your assigned day, volunteers are available 8am-4pm to help move your items. Helping Hands volunteer assistance is available on assigned move in days only. There are no Helping Hands volunteers available to assist you if you arrive before or after your scheduled move in date and time.
 
We strongly encourage you to make every effort to arrive on your assigned move in date.
 
If you must arrive early or late, please review the information below and follow the instructions to submit your Early or Late arrival request via the myHousing Overview. 
 

Early/Late Arrival Considerations

  • The cost for an Early Arrival is $30 per day. Unless prior arrangements have been made with a coach, supervisor, advisor, etc. that charge will be billed directly to the student’s account in September.
  • Early Arrival requests must be submitted by Sunday, August 10. Requests made after this date are not guaranteed and subject to a fee.
  • Campus Dining Meal Plans become active on Monday, August 18.
  • Early Arrival requests are granted per student, not per room. Each roommate must make an individual request for an Early Arrival. There are no guests (including other roommates not approved for Early Arrival) allowed in campus housing buildings prior to the scheduled move-in date.
  • Check-in instructions will be sent via your GVSU student email account. Check-in times and location vary by date of arrival.
  • Upon arrival you will receive additional instructions regarding required procedures and floor meetings.
  • To cancel your early or late arrival request, please email reslife@gvsu.edu with your name and G number.
