Fall 2017 Move-In

Moving into your on-campus residence hall room, suite, or apartment is an exciting yet hectic time for new and returning students alike. Residence Life staff will do our very best to make the move-in process as easy and simple as possible in order to help you get settled into your new home away from home.  Please review the information and resources below before you arrive to campus. We look forward seeing you at your new home!

Residents must have a valid ID card to check into any building and must present it to the residence life staff. At check-in, you will receive a room key or combination, a mailbox key and NJIT ID (if you are a new student). You will also sign a room inventory form. This inventory form is a checklist regarding the condition of the room upon check-in and an accounting of the room furnishings. If you find any discrepancies with the room inventory, you must document and return it to your RA within 48 hours of your check-in.

If you have not checked into your room within 48 hours your scheduled check-in date, you will forfeit your room assignment and be charged the cancellation fee as indicated in the terms and conditions of the housing application and contract for fall 2017 through spring 2018.  If you plan to arrive late, please contact our office so we can make note.
