Due to unexpected operational issues, there will be no more Early Return Requests accepted for the Fall 2013 semester.

Early Return Requests

The Housing & Residence Life department allows early return for students with extraordinary circumstances, or those required to arrive to campus early.

Note: Some buildings may not be ready for the early return process due to facility projects and renovations.  If a student's room/building is impacted by these projects, they will not be approved for early return.

Arrival Schedule

In order to facilitate a smooth move-in for all, students should plan their travel to arrive on their scheduled move-in date.

New and transfer students return for Fall 2013 on Sunday, August 25th, beginning at 9:00 a.m.  Returning students return on Tuesday, August 27th, beginning at 10 am.  Classes begin Wednesday, August 28th.

You may be eligible for permission to arrive early if you meet one of the following criteria:

  • A newly admitted international student registered for welcome week/orientation
  • Students registered for an early-starting academic program (must provide proof)
  • A varsity athlete participating in a recognized sport or student activity (must be approved by the Athletic department)
  • Have an exceptional travel distance of more than five hours drive from campus (local residents are not eligible for early return)
  • Families who live more than five hours away and who have both freshman/transfer and upper class students living in WCSU residence halls
  • Families with two or more college students at different universities moving in on the same day (must provide the other university's move-in letter)
  • Students with disabilities (requests must be made through AccessAbilities office)

How do I request an Early Return?

All requests must be submitted via the Early Return Request form.  This PDF will have an email "submit" button that will email this from your computer to our offices.  It will then be forwarded to your building's resident director for review.
