Summer Move-in

Check-In Information

New Students

Move-in day is an exciting time for new students and their families, and we're greatly looking forward to your arrival. On Sunday, May 19, check-in will take place at Residential Living & Learning (644 N Woodland Boulevard) from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Please come with a photo ID so we can issue your keys. Once you have your keys, you can go to your residence hall and begin to get settled in. 

We strongly encourage you to submit your Hatter1 Card (Student ID) Request in advance so your ID is ready when you check in.  Waiting to submit your Hatter1 Card request will delay your check-in process. Your ID will give you access to Academic and Administrative Buildings and your assigned Residential Building (if applicable).

Students can check out our Stetson Packing Guide to review our list of items to bring to campus and items to leave at home.  Remember that DeLand has several shopping center options, so you can purchase any items you may have forgotten when you arrive.  We also recommend waiting to purchase any large items (like decorations) until you have had a chance to view your assigned space and take measurements. 

Continuing Students

Housing Assignments:
You will receive your summer housing assignment as early as May 10.  Review more information about summer housing locations and rates by visiting Summer Housing Applications.

Spring to Summer Transition Housing:
Students who are currently living on campus for Spring and have an approved Summer Housing Application will be permitted to stay on campus for the transition period between Spring Closing (May 8) and Summer Move-In (May 19).  

Summer Check-In:
You should plan to transition from your spring assignment to your summer assignment on Sunday, May 19. Check-in location and time will be emailed to summer residents with their assignments. Once you move into your summer assignment, you will check out of your spring assignment and return your keys to the Residential Living and Learning Office no later than Monday, May 20.  If you are unable to check out of your spring assignment and return your keys during business hours (8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.), place your keys in the key return drop-box at the entrance to Residential Living & Learning at University Hall.  If you are unable to move to your summer assignment during this timeframe, please contact Residential Living & Learning at [email protected] as soon as possible.

Getting Settled

Getting set up in your room is an important first step. We encourage you to reach out to your roommate(s) prior to the move-in day to discuss some basic ideas about how to set up the room to your shared preferences. An empty room is full of possibilities and is just waiting for you to add your personal touch.

Animal Friends

Stetson University is an animal-friendly campus. It's important to remember that only Animal-Friendly Summer Housing will be in Stetson Cove Apartments, so any pets that are helping to send you off to college need to remain outside of the other residence halls and check-in area. All animals must have received prior approval from Residential Living and Learning to live with you in the animal-friendly residence halls, so please be sure you have gone through that process before bringing your animal with you to campus.  The Request for Animal-in-Residence is available right now on Housing Central. Students who bring an animal into the residential buildings without prior approval will face a student conduct hearing and a $500 Unauthorized Animal fine, so be sure to submit your requests ASAP!
