Register for NSOP and Secure Your Move-in Time by 7/28
Remember to register for the New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) by Monday, July 28. When registering, you will also select your preferred two hour block of time for checking in and moving in.
On move-in day, proceed directly to Carlton Arms at 362 Riverside Drive for your scheduled contract signing appointment. You will need two passport sized photographs with your name written on the reverse side of each. Please note: the pictures can be printed and not professional.
Created specifically for students living at 362 Riverside Drive, the Guide to Living at Carlton Arms outlines many things, including guest passes, maintenance requests, and general building procedures like mail service and lockouts.
Are your belongings insured through a parent or guardian’s homeowner’s policy? If not, we encourage you to insure them through another vendor. The University assumes no responsibility for the loss or damage of students’ property while residing in Columbia Housing.
Columbia Housing facilitates refrigerator-microwave combination unit rentals for students through MicroFridge, the only University-approved combination unit. Refrigerators that meet the size and energy requirements can also be purchased at the University Bookstore or at the EcoReps' Green Sale.
The laundry room is located in the basement of Carlton Arms and can be reached by using the elevator. Laundry machines are card-operated and cards can be purchased in the laundry room. If any problems with the machines are encountered, please contact the service number on the back of the card.
Each member of the residential community shares responsibility in establishing and sustaining a living environment that balances individual and community needs. Read carefully through the Guide to Living; your RA will be a resource for any policies/procedures that are different for Combined Plan students.
The Hospitality Desk, located in the lobby of Hartley Hall, is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist you with issues such as maintenance and custodial requests, moving bin rentals, keys and locks, and faxes.

Group Advising Session (8/27)
During NSOP, there will be a mandatory group advising session on August 27, 9:00-11:00 a.m. This session will include a student panel to answer your questions and provide general information to help you prepare your fall schedule. For details, check the student schedule book you will receive on campus.
Major-Specific Advising Session
After the group advising session, each department will have a mandatory major-specific advising session. You will meet with a faculty adviser in your department and learn about courses for the fall semester. This is also a time to discuss courses taken that you may be able to apply toward your major.
