AUgust Move-In day information

We hope that you have enjoyed your summer and are gearing up for a successful academic year!  The Residential Life and Housing staff is excited and has been preparing for your arrival.  All students are reminded to adhere to all University and move-in day policies, procedures, and guidelines to insure that they have a smooth and seamless check-in process on their designated move-in days. 

The following changes have been made on our campus:

  1. King Hall will be designated for female students only.
  2. Truth Hall will be designated for male students only.
  3. The New Residence Hall is designated for those students participating in a living learning community. Students must actively participate in an advertised living learning community to live in the New Residence Hall. You can view the different living learning communities by clicking on the link below:

  4. Emlen Hall is designated for the Keystone Honors Academy (KHA) students and Humphreys Hall is designated for the Humphreys Scholar students who have been approved by the Dean of the Keystone Honors Academy. 

 Our office will begin to e-mail housing assignments July 1st for all students who paid their housing deposits by advertised deadlines and who have been cleared by the Bursar's Office.

New & Transfer Student (June 30, 2013)
Returning Students (April 26, 2013)

Housing assignments will begin to be e-mailed on August 1, 2013 to those students who paid their housing deposits after the advertised deadlines and who have been cleared by the Bursar's Office.
 
All students must have a valid Cheyney University ID that is in "good working condition" to check-in to their assigned residence halls.  New students may obtain their CU ID card once they arrive to campus on their designated move-in day. Returning students who have misplaced and/or damaged their CU ID must pay the $24 replacement fee at the Bursar's Office and obtain a replacement ID card from the Office of Information Technology located on the 1st floor of Vaux Logan Hall prior to move-in days. Be advised that returning students should not wait until move-in day to replace lost or damaged CU ID cards. 
All business offices, except Public Safety are closed on the weekends
. To increase the level of safety in all residence halls, there will be no exceptions. In addition, students will not be permitted to dine in the dining facilities without a working CU ID card unless they pay cash. Please plan accordingly.

Before arriving to campus, it is the student's responsibility to review their student account and that all University obligations have been resolved and satisfactory financial arrangements (tuition, fees, room, and board paid in full) have been confirmed by the Bursar's Office. Be advised that students will not be permitted to check-in to any residence hall without the appropriate clearance.

To better serve you as a member of the CU community, there have been several changes made to a few policies and procedures that govern the living learning community experience.  It is our goal to make sure that all members of the University community are aware of these changes.  The staff assigned to your residence hall will play a vital role in reviewing these new and exciting changes with each student who resides in the residence halls.  As a reminder, and as you prepare for your return to campus, all students are expected to be familiar with the Student Code of Conduct, Student Handbook, University policies, procedures, and Local, State, and Federal Laws. 

Once again, it is our goal to assist all students so that they experience an efficient and gratifying move-in day process. 
   

We have several exciting activities and events planned just for you
and we look forward to your arrival!
