Parent to Parent Advice
After move-in, we asked parents what advice they would give to the next groups moving in to University Housing. Check out the parent to parent advice (pdf) they provided.
To avoid congestion, each vehicle wishing to enter a loading zone must have a Loading-Zone Pass. One pass will be included in your Move-In Mailer (which should arrive shortly after July 20). If you are bringing additional vehicles, please contact University Housing for an additional Loading-Zone Pass (pdf) per vehicle. Fill in the Loading Zone Pass prior to arrival and have it available for the police officer as you drive in. Time in the loading zone is limited to 20 minutes. Cars left parked in the loading zone after 2 p.m. may be towed at the owners expense.
University Housing cannot cover the loss or damage to student property. Prior to arrival, please consult your homeowner's policy or secure personal property insurance. For more information on personal property insurance, visit the GradGuard web site.
The Roommate Agreement can help suitemates work out what is considered acceptable for suite. Items covered including cleaning schedules, guest preferences and establishing when it is and isn't okay to borrow items from each other. It's a good idea for roommates and suitemates to review this agreement prior to arrival at GC.

Week of Welcome
The Week of Welcome begins when you move into your apartment or residence hall and is a great way to be introduced to the campus and meet new people.
Please remember to check out the University Housing Handbook if you have a question about whether or not to bring a specific item. Dart-boards, string lights, lava lamps, candles, incense, halogen lamps, electric heaters, extension cords, weapons of any kind, animals or pets other than fish, alcohol, illegal drugs, homemade lofts, adhesive-backed hooks, wall paper, contact paper, nails and screws. In the residence halls, cooking equipment with exposed heating elements (toasters, hot plates, etc.) are not permitted.
Make your new room a bit more homey by adding personal touches.
Floorplans and Dimensions
You're welcome to bring any additional furniture you wish (with the exception of lofts), however please remember the university-provided furniture must remain in the room. Beds in the residence halls are twin, extra-long (80" length). Beds in Bell Hall are lofted, and in all other residence halls are junior lofts (with a maximum height of 34" from the floor) and are bunk-able. Beds at The Village are a fixed height with full size mattresses.
Room Condition Report
Upon check in, each student will complete a Room Condition Report (RCR). This form helps to identify any pre-existing conditions in the room. Damages found at the end of the year that are not identified on the RCR will be charged to the student.
The bed height is adjustable which provides for ample storage. Consider shelving units and over-the-door organizers to maximize your closet space. Since floor space is limited, consider "building up" by investing in stackable storage bins.
Items that damage the walls (nails, tacks, sticky-putty, tape, etc.) are not recommended. We suggest using 3M's Command Strips products. When removed properly, these products do not damage the walls. Please note that the student will be charged for any damages done to the room upon check out. Students may not paint their rooms, however, if painting is needed please submit a maintenance request.
We recommend using basic tension rods and not mounting brackets to hang curtains. Window blinds are provided for all windows.
