First-year Move-in Day-Housing Services - Carnegie Mellon University

Check-in for First-year Students (non-international)

Please note: Check-in days and time for the 2016-2017 academic year have not yet been determined. Please check back for updates.

Check in for all non-international first-year students will be TBD.  If you arrive on campus after TBD, go to the the Margaret Morrison Storefront office at 5134 Margaret Morrison Street to obtain your student ID, keys, and orientation materials. If you live in the Residence on Fifth or Shirley Apartments, please go to the Residence on Fifth Service Desk located at 4700 Fifth Avenue to obtain your ID, keys, and materials. Both locations will be open 24 hours a day beginning TBD. If you are not able to arrive on TBD and will be arriving later in the week, please email so that we know to hold your space for you.

There will be four check-in tents that will be operating on TBD.  Find the building that you've been assigned to below and check-in at the appropriate tent.  Information about check-in tent locations with driving directions will be sent closer to opening day.

When you check in, you will receive your Carnegie Mellon ID+ encoded with your housing access directly on it, as long as you submitted a photo to the Card Office in advance. If you haven't already submitted your photo ID, visit the ID Card Services website for instructions. Otherwise, you will receive a temporary key at check-in time and can pick up your ID card at the Card Office later in the day.
