Bloomsburg University’s student move-in recently began with upperclassmen who are mentors and students leaders, along with student-athletes preparing for the fall sports season.
Freshmen start moving onto campus Monday, Aug. 18, and continue through Friday, Aug. 22, according to their assigned times and locations. Most of the upperclassmen begin their return to campus on Friday, Aug. 22, in preparation for the first day of fall classes on Monday, Aug. 25.
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.
