Please check out the welcome newsletter that was e-mailed to all of your student e-mails with some important information about move in and living in Rountree. If you never received the e-mail or no longer have the e-mail, you may find the information here. As well as the general welcome newsletter from the department here.

Do not forget to bring your personal data form (PDF) when you move in. This is a very important form for check in, and you may find it here! Having this completed prior to check in will greatly increase the speed of your check in time!

Just a reminder, once you move in all residence hall policies are in effect. Please be sure to check the Rountree Guide to Living as well as the Residence Hall Handbook. These two resources include all of the residence hall policies for students living in the hall.

All of the staff will be seeing you soon! We can't wait to get the year started!
