Arriving to campus

We are asking that all students arrive to campus using the route below:

  • From S Claiborne Ave, please turn onto Broadway St towards St. Charles Avenue
  • After Driving .9 miles, please turn Left onto Freret St.
  • After driving .4miles, you will turn right into the road next to the parking garage.
  • There you will stop at the drive-up check-in station located outside the Freret Street Garage.  Staff will direct you where to go after that.  


Unloading your Car

To unload your car, each resident is given a designated spot on the first floor of a parking garage to unload your car for one hour. During move-in, you will only be allowed to use the elevator for your room during this one-hour window. During this window, we are asking that your sole task is unloading your car. Please do not decorate or begin to unpack in your room until your car is unpacked.

Below are detailed instructions for car unloading procedures:

  • When you arrive at your parking garage, please pick a parking spot on the 1st of the West Garage. 
  • If you need a blue bin to assist with move-in, there will be a check-out location in the Residential Quad.  Please note, blue bins are limited and will be checked out at a first come, first serve process.  
  • It is suggested that you bring your own moving equipment (bins, dollies, etc). 
  • You may use the elevators during your designated move-in time 
  • After you have completely unloaded your car, please return your blue bin (if you borrowed one) and move your car to the upper floor of the parking garage


Elevator Use

During your move-in time slot, we are asking that residents and families only use the elevator to go up during move-in unless you have a physical need to use the elevator going down. After your time slot has closed, you will only be allowed to use the stairs (unless you have a physical need to use the elevator).

When waiting for the elevator, you will take your items to the elevator line for each building.

There will be designated waiting spots for the elevator that will be socially distanced apart.

The elevators will be limited to one family at a time. After 5pm each day, the elevators will be opened so that residents and guests can use the elevator to bring in more items. We are asking that Residents and Guests adhere to the elevator capacity limits and social distancing guidelines placed forth.


Room Condition Reports Within 48 hours after checking into the residence halls, you will need to log into The Housing Director and complete the Room Condition Report. To access the room condition report, you click “more” and then “Room Condition Report.” Make any adjustments to the form and then click “Submit.” Once this form is submitted, you will not be able to make any changes or edits. You may be held responsible for damages that were not listed on your room condition report when your student checks out of the Residence Halls.


We look forward to welcoming your student to the Wolfpack in just a few weeks. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us by emailing or texting 504-384-7953.
