Spring Semester 2020 Move-Out Plan

Last Update: April 9, 2020

For those who are currently impacted by state or military travel restrictions and are concerned you will not be able to come to campus by May 2, please communicate your circumstances with the Residence Life office in the weeks ahead and we will seek to accommodate you. The circumstances surrounding COVID-19 continue to change rapidly and we will provide updates to the move out plan as needed on this page.

Although this is not the plan we would have chosen, we are trusting in God’s sovereignty.

We have developed a thorough move-out plan for you to follow. For safety and efficiency, we are limiting the number of students who can return to campus at one time.

You will need to select a specific date and time through our online sign-up below. Please be sure to read each step carefully. We will need to adhere to this plan in order to not tax our limited personnel on campus and to keep appropriate social distancing. We understand that you will want to see friends, but you will have limited time in the residence halls, and we want to minimize any form of social gathering as much as possible as a measure of wisdom and discernment and for the well-being of our campus community.

Move-Out Schedule

To make the move out process as efficient and safe as possible for our students, we are scheduling move-out dates over a four-week period, with limited spots available for each date.

Week 1: March 20-27, 2020
Week 2: March 30-April 4, 2020
Week 3: April 13-18, 2020
Week 4: April 27-May 2, 2020
