Residence hall update & student move-in schedule

After years of planning and months of preparation, our student residence hall is finally a reality! We are thrilled to welcome our first-ever student residents. At the time of opening, we expect to be at 90% occupancy, with a rich mix of domestic and international students across various ages and programs.

Here is what you need to know about what’s happening at 7000 Campus Living this month:

PARKING AND TRAFFIC DURING FURNITURE INSTALLATION:

  • Campus entrances and parking will be impacted September 7-13, when all furniture will be delivered and installed in the building. We ask for your patience during this big event! There will be several work crews, large trucks, and pallets of furniture temporarily staged in various parking areas and walkways.
  • Employees are asked to avoid using the main entrance to campus September 7-13. Please enter at the West Gate to reduce traffic congestion near Building 7000.
  • The visitor parking lot will be closed during this time and visitors will be directed to enter at the West Gate and park in the west lot (fees and permits will not be required).
  • One of the vendors, Correctional Industries, will have an experienced crew working onsite during these dates. While many schools, including UW, routinely use their services with no issues or complications, we wanted to let you know about their presence on our campus.

STUDENT MOVE-IN SCHEDULE:

  • Please anticipate increased traffic to campus September 14-22 for student move-in.
  • Resident Assistants and Avery Whittington, Assistant Director of Residential Life, will move in September 7-8. New international students will move in September 14-15. New and continuing domestic students and continuing international students will move in September 20-22.
  • Students will be assigned three-hour blocks between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on those days to move their belongings in. Rolling carts will be provided to assist them. Be ready for a buzz of activity at the main campus entrance and visitor lot as parents and others help students settle into their new living arrangement.

RIBBON-CUTTING EVENT:

  • Join us for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, September 26 at 11:00 a.m. in front of 7000 Campus Living. Students and employees will be able to tour the building at 12:00 p.m.

CAMPUS USE OF THE BUILDING:

  • For the first several weeks of fall quarter, we will not accept reservations for campus events in Building 7000 to ensure that our students’ move-in process goes smoothly and they have first priority to use the space as they settle in. Room reservation information will be made available later in the quarter. For questions about future reservations, please contact Jenifer Adelotte.

Thank you!
