Early/Late Arrival Requests

Fall 2018

All students will receive a specific move in date and time with their housing assignment via their Husky email. If you would like to change your assigned time you must submit an Arrival Change Request.  Arrival Change Requests must be submitted by students and will be reviewed by the Building Staff on an ongoing basis.  Approvals will be made case-by-case and based upon room availability. The request form will not be available until the week of July 9th.

If you are in university housing for Summer II and are looking to change your MOVE TO/FROM date:

You do not need to fill out this form but should speak directly to your Residence Directors. Their contact information can be found HERE.

EARLY ARRIVAL FEE: Second year and Upperclass students, please read the following message regarding the early arrival fee.

There is an early arrival fee of $250 that will be assessed if you arrive earlier than August 30th. That fee will be waived if you volunteer during move-in.  Fall move-in at Northeastern is an exciting time, but it takes many people to make it all happen smoothly.  Please sign-up to volunteer by clicking here. If you have questions about your volunteer shift please email movein.volunteers@northeastern.edu Fees will be waived after move-in occurs and will only be waived if your volunteer shift is fulfilled. Incoming first year students are not eligible to volunteer, and are therefore not responsible for the early arrival fee. 

** First Year Honors Program Students: due to the Honors Program retreat please do not request a late arrival.

If you are living in university housing for summer II or are living on select floors in 1110 Comm Ave you will not have access to this form. 

If your housing assignment changes for fall, you will need to re-submit you Arrival Change Request Form.
