What You Need to Know

Beginning Monday, July 19, at 10 am, all resident students can select their Move-In Time Block for Welcome Weekend through their MyHousing portal homepage. You’ll have one hour of time, which will give you and your helpers plenty of room and will help us to manage resources for families during this busy weekend.

If you have a hold on your account (financial, immunization, COVID vaccine/exemption), you will not be able to move in. Please resolve these holds prior to your arrival to campus.

The University requires all students, faculty and staff to be vaccinated for COVID-19 or have an approved exemption prior to arriving to campus for Fall 2021 semester. Please plan the remainder of your summer to ensure you are fully vaccinated prior to Welcome Weekend. If you haven’t received your vaccination yet, here are the dates you’ll need to have your shots by in order to meet this requirement.

 Do you have an approved exemption?

  • You do not need to provide proof of negative test upon arriving; however, you must be tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible after moving in. (More information on Husson’s Surveillance Site hours of operation will be available as we get closer to the beginning of the Fall 2021 semester.)
  • You must complete your Eagle Safe Self-Assessment before coming to campus. If you are not approved to come to campus, contact the COVID Information Line (207. 944.1919) for further instructions.

For more information on the University’s plan for the 2021-2022 academic year, please visit our Protect Husson page.


When you arrive to campus, Husson Circle will be a one-way loop around campus. Your first stop (in your vehicle without having to exit) will be at our Welcome Tent to check in with our staff to ensure you have resolved any pending account holds. Please have your MyHousing Portal open and logged in to show our staff. Any holds will be posted to your MyHousing homepage. If clear, you’ll be directed to your Residence Hall. If you need to resolve a hold, you will be directed to park in Lot 8a and enter the O'Donnell Commons and speak with the appropriate staff. When resolved, staff in O’Donnell Commons will notify Residence Hall staff of your expected arrival at your residence hall. Please see some important reminders below:

  • The campus loop will be one-way during the move-in hours of Welcome Weekend.
  • Once at your residence hall, volunteers will be there to assist you with temporary parking, unloading, and moving your belongings to your room. You’ll see signs and volunteers to assist you with directions.
  • You’ll receive instructions on how to enter the hall and your room:
    • Traditional Hall Residents: you’ll receive your room key and card access to exterior doors.
    • Darling Learning Center Residents: you’ll be given instructions on how to encode your Eagle ID card for access to suite and room within (no room keys).
    • Townhouse Residents: you’ll retrieve your key that unlocks the exterior door and your room door from Carlisle Hall.
    • If you arrive late or after we have closed hall check-in for the afternoon, please meet the Resident Assistant in the lobby of your hall at 7 pm.
    • You’ll receive instructions on completing your Room Condition Report (which must be completed within 48 hours of your check-in date).
    • Each resident will be allowed two helpers. This keeps the flow of traffic in and out of our halls manageable.

We encourage all first-year commuter students to arrive to campus on Saturday, August 28, 2021 for mandatory events:
  • New Student Convocation at 2 pm, Newman Gymnasium (Students Only)
  • HE 111 Husson Experiences first class at 3 pm; you'll be directed from the Convocation

Please arrive earlier in the day if you need to take care of any business with offices or departments on campus.

Any early-arrival athletes for Fall 2021 preseason do not need to complete this form, as coaching staff have already been notifying our office.
