Move-In, Move-Out & Winter Break
As a resident of the college community, you must abide by all rules and regulations outlined in the Residence Life Policies and Procedures. Be sure to familiarize yourself with proper check-out procedures before leaving for winter and summer breaks, as outlined below.
August Move-In 2021
First-years and incoming transfers will move-in on Wednesday, August 18, 2021. Details about move-in window time frames and move-in procedures for first-years and transfers will be sent via email in the coming weeks from the Residence Life office.
Move-in for returning students will be on Saturday, August 21 and Sunday, August 22, 2021, from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. each day. Returning students may choose which of these two days they wish to return and do not have to confirm the selected date of arrival with RLO in advance. All students must check-in with RLO between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on August 21 or 22 to gain access to their hall or apartment. If you cannot check-in before 6 p.m. on your arrival date, please make a reservation at a hotel or stay with a friend off-campus for that evening and check in the following day.
Students may not move in prior to August 21. If flying back to campus, do not choose a flight arriving earlier than August 21 as the halls will not be open and early arrival move-in will not be offered. Students arriving before August 21 will need to make a reservation at a hotel or make arrangements to stay with a friend off-campus until the halls open. Move-in day procedures will be sent to returning students via email in the coming weeks from the Residence Life office.
Students who are a part of an early arrival group will receive notification from their coaches or sponsors regarding the date their groups will return. All communication about early arrivals will be conveyed to participants through their sponsoring organization, please contact your organization or coach directly with questions.
Each year RLO receives early arrival requests from residents who are not part of an approved early arrival group. We understand students may have circumstances that they feel may warrant a request to arrive earlier than August 21, 2021, however early arrival requests will not be approved for the fall 2021 semester. Residents may only arrive on the date they are scheduled for.
Email the Residence Life office at RLO@davidson.edu with additional questions.

Residence halls and apartments close for all residents on Saturday, December 11 at 12 p.m. (noon). Keep this date and time in mind when arranging flights, as late stays past noon will not be granted. All residence halls and apartments will close at noon.
