The campus shuttle service will operate on a special condensed move-in schedule, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., then Saturday, 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and Sunday, 10:30 a.m. to midnight. Wal-Mart runs will be done Friday and Saturday, starting at 6:30 p.m. to the return at 9:15 p.m.
5 things parents should know about Move-In Week
campus signs will clearly mark where each residence hall drop off is to go, as well as student staff and campus police will be on hand to help direct parents where to stage their vehicle
student staff will help you quickly unload your car. We ask that one driver stay with the vehicle. While your student checks in, you will be asked to move your vehicle to a longer term parking area to create unloading space for other arrivals.
typically, unloading and check-in move very quickly. Expect some delays at the elevators.
once moved in, check out the new “facelift” in the Scranton Commons … take a “selfie” in front of the new Roongo fountain!
remind your student to check out the Activities Fair on Sunday, Aug. 24, on the Academic Quad. It’s a fun opportunity to make new friends and get involved in campus life. 
An added FYI - Beginning Fall 2014, bed rails will become standard and installed on all bunked and lofted beds as an added safety feature for our students. They will be inventoried into the room and must be present and in use while there are lofted and/or bunked beds in use in the room.  




Bed rails must remain on the beds and we highly recommend that you do not remove them.  Students will not incur a charge for removing bedrails. However, a replacement fee of $53 per bedrail will result for any missing or damaged bedrails.

Bloomsburg University’s Act 101/EOP recently completed another productive and enriching summer program, helping more than 250 students — many of whom are first-generation college students — get acclimated to college life and prepared for a successful college experience. Among the courses taken and academic support provided to the students over the past six weeks included reading, algebra, college writing, public speaking, U.S. history, Spanish I, computer skills, mindfulness and college orientation.

Act 101/EOP, coordinated through the Department of Developmental Instruction, provides support and opportunities for success to students traditionally under-represented in higher education.

Through this program, students …

  • reach their potential  — Act 101/EOP assists students, who are at a financial, cultural, social or educational disadvantage, in making a successful transition to Bloomsburg University.
  •  discover the value of progress  — Act 101/EOP develops students to their fullest potential through academic advising, tutoring, mentorship and a pre-college summer program.
  • exposure to cultural enrichment activities  — avisit to the state capitol in Harrisburg and annual picnic at Town Park
