A: First of all, congratulations... and welcome to the UC community!
You should be receiving (or perhaps have already received) information about your son/daughter's residence hall assignment. (This will come via the U.S. mail and electronically to your son/daughter's new UC e-mail address. For more information about UC e-mail, click here >)
When your son/daughter arrives to campus, members of Campus Safety staff will direct him/her to the building he/she has been assigned to. From there, staffers and fellow UC students will assist you in unloading your vehicle and brining your son/daughter's belongings up to his/her room, while your son/daughter "checks-in"and receives keys and other important information from the Residence Life Staff.
After you have unloaded your vehicle, you will be directed to one of the parking lots near the Residence Hall to park your vehicle. Then you will have an opportunity to set up your son/daughter's room, visit other offices to finalize any last minute details... or perhaps stop by the bookstore to pick up your first UC sweatshirt!
Be sure to check your UC materials for details about move-in day activities, as well as the schedule for the many events that will occur during the college’s Welcome Week. If you have any questions or have not received complete information by mail or e-mail, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Residence Life.
