For students not participating in an early arrival program, the residence halls open at 9 a.m. Friday, August 18, 2017. 

Park your vehicle (if applicable) near your assigned residence hall. Grinnell students and staff will be available to help you unload and transport your belongings to your assigned room. As part of our commitment to an eco-friendly campus, please bring only what you need, reducing the amount of waste we create.

The keys for your room, along with your NSO materials and a residence hall agreement, are available from your residence life coordinator between 9 a.m. and noon in your residential cluster.  

We have included a move-in campus map to assist you in navigation.

If you arrive on campus after noon on Friday, Aug. 18, proceed to student affairs on the third floor of the Joe Rosenfield ’25 Center (JRC). Please note that a $50 deposit for your key is charged to each student account; this is refunded to you if you return your key at the end of the academic year.

*Exceptions include early arrival participants in Grinnell Science Project, International Pre-Orientation Program, Peer Connections Pre-Orientation Program, and fall athletic teams, who will move into assigned rooms on the date requested by each program director or coach, before Aug. 18.
