There is an almost electric energy in the quad on Move-In Day. The music plays and student frosh leaders help new students take their boxes and bags to their new rooms.
After you’ve moved in, there’s a barbecue for you, your family and friends, where you will meet the president, the dean of students, the registrar, and members of the teaching faculty and hear them talk about the year ahead. The president and the dean will meet with your parents, while you get together with your fellow first-year students. You’ll then head out for a week’s worth of orientation activities to help you get acquainted with your new home.

On Move-In Day, you will receive a residence Welcome Package that contains your access cards and room keys, laundry card, Student Life 101, and academic gown. You can also pick up your King’s student ID card (also known as DalCard), or have your photo taken for it. You’ll be able to purchase a Frosh Pack for the week from the King’s Students’ Union. Remember to bring a piece of government-issued photo ID with you. On the desk in your room, you will find the Residence Room Assessment Form, which you must complete and return to the front desk of Alexandra Hall to ensure that your damage deposit will be credited to your account.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept boxes, packages or trunks prior to your arrival, so please don’t send your belongings to the college before you arrive. We also cannot store items over the summer because our residence buildings are operated as conference space and hotel accommodations from May until August.
Students are not permitted to move into residence prior to the official move-in date because we will be busy preparing the rooms. You may arrange for early drop-off of your belongings to your room at special dates and times prior to move-in. Please contact the Residence Office for details.
Unfortunately, we do not have any storage space available on campus, so please pack accordingly.
