First-Year Student Move-In Information

First-Year Student Move-In Day is Friday, Aug. 14, 2020.

Check-in will be held from 1–5:00 p.m. You must arrive during this designated time to keep your room reservation. There are no early move-ins, unless you are in one of the Early Start Programs.

Hogle Hall

The entrance to Hogle Hall is off 1200 East. To get there, turn west on Westminster Ave. from 1300 East. Staff and signs will guide you toward Hogle Hall parking to unload your items.

Carleson Hall

The entrance to Carleson Hall is off 1300 East. Staff and signs will guide you toward Carleson Hall and parking to unload your items.

Olwell and Behnken Halls

The entrance to Olwell and Behnken Halls is off 1200 East. To get there, turn west on Westminster Ave. from 1300 East. Staff and signs will guide you toward parking for Olwell and Behnken Halls to unload your items.

Mandatory Floor and Security Meetings

In order to build community with your fellow floor mates, mandatory floor and security meetings will be held on move-in day from 8–9:30 p.m. We ask that you do not make plans for this time. Your meeting will take place in your residence hall. If you move in early, you will be required to attend the meeting that occurs on move-in day.

Shipping Items to Campus

Since our ability to manage and store large quantities of shipped items is limited, we encourage students not to ship items ahead of their arrival. Students who live at a distance that prevents them from being able to drive their items into the city can arrange to have things shipped to arrive on campus after the official move-in weekend. These students are strongly advised to travel with everything they will need for the first few days of living in the residence halls until they have access to their mailed items.

Campus Map Directions to Campus Parking Info

Parking Permit

Any student is allowed to have a car on campus. Should you decide to bring your car to campus, you must register it and pay for a parking permit that will allow you to park in one of the parking areas on campus. Residential Overnight Parking Permits cost $200 and are valid until August 2019. You can buy parking permits online with a credit card.

Student ID

Student IDs are necessary for access to any residence hall after move-in day and for your meal plan. Your ID has a chip in it and acts like a debit card—you will need it each time you spend money in the cafeteria. You can pick up a student ID during scheduled hours in the Health, Wellness, and Athletic Center on or before move-in day.

Campus Technology Support

Westminster supports both Windows and Mac computers. On campus, computers are equipped with Windows 7, the Microsoft Office Suite, multiple web browsers, and many more academic applications. The Information Services department staffs a support phone, 801.832.2023, 7 days a week that students may call for technical support. Information Services also maintains technology support resources including do-it-yourself instructions for common technical issues.

Student Laptop Requirements

All incoming students are required to have access to a laptop computer running, at a minimum, Windows 7 or Mac OSX 10.7.1+. At this time, tablet computers are not supported. With a laptop, students will be able to access Westminster Anywhere, a program allowing students to directly access files and academic programs, both in class and at home. Students can certify their laptops for use by visiting the General Computer Lab, located in the Giovale Library.

Computer Account Resources

Every student account includes an email address, 2GB of backed-up network storage space, Wi-Fi access, and access to academic software. Students also have access to Office 365, allowing them to use the Office Suite online or on their own computer. Residential students also have access to the RecNet network, which supports personal devices such as Xbox, Roku, AppleTV, and others. Informational sessions on computer accounts, Office 365, and how to set up RecNet are held during New Student Orientation. If you are unable to attend orientation, you may visit the General Computer lab for assistance.

Accessing Campus During 1300 East Construction

The road in front of campus, 1300 East, has been closed for the past several months for a city waterline project. Westminster College has worked closely with the city and construction crews throughout the construction process. Carefully read the driving and parking instructions for your move-in day.

1300 East will be closed when you arrive to campus. You will not be able to use 1300 East for your arrival. On your move-in day, please follow these instructions carefully for your assigned residence hall.

Hogle and Carleson: Park in the Jewett parking lot (between buildings 18 and 15 on the campus map) and unload your items from your car. You will be able to access this parking lot by using 1700 South.

Residential Village (All Other Halls): Park in the Nunemaker parking lot (behind building 29 on the campus map) and unload your cars from that location. You will be able to access this parking lot using 1200 East.

The college worked closely with construction crews to temporarily allow you access to 1300 East on move-in day (Aug. 16). Please read the following information carefully to ensure an easy and safe move-in.

All move-in traffic must enter campus from 1300 East. Access to 1300 East will be granted at 2100 South. You may only drive northbound on 1300 East. The one-way access will ensure safety for you and the construction crews. You will be driving on road base, a smooth gravel surface. Please keep speeds below 15 mph for safety and dust control.

Carleson Hall residents will enter and exit campus at the 1300 East round-about in front of Converse Hall. Make sure to turn north (left) when exiting.

Residents of all other halls will enter campus by the ceramic studio (look for the Residential Village sign and volunteers) and exit campus on 1200 East.

1300 East will be closed when you move back to campus and begin classes. You can access campus via 1200 East and 1700 South.
