Where To Go
There will be three check-in areas on Move-In Day. Volunteers will be available at the check-in locations to assist with unloading your belongings. Information about check-in tent locations with driving directions will be sent closer to Move-In.
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.
