Move-in day and time sign-up

Check your Housing Agreement for the day you were assigned to move in. A sign-up link will be sent to your PCA&D email so you can pick a time to arrive on that day. If for any reason you’re unable to move in on your assigned day, please contact the Residential Life team as soon as possible at housingservice@pcad.edu.

Check-in at PCA&D

To check-in, you should come to campus to receive your keys and welcome packet. We ask that you arrive at Prince Street where you will be welcomed by the Residential Life team to check-in.

At your housing location

From campus, you will make your way to your respective community where staff and student workers will be there to welcome you and help direct you to where you can find your assigned living spaces.

Family help

Families will be able to help students move in. Per our guest policy in Housing, any guests will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing. Please limit guests to four (4) per student for move-ins.
