Your Move-In Time

You may move-in anytime after 10am on January 20, 2018.

Move-in Day

Check-in will take place at Sandburg Hall (3400 N. Maryland Ave.). Please park in the circle drive. The student should then proceed to the Sandburg Service Desk (located in the lobby on the first floor) to receive room keys and get pictures taken for security purposes. Once you have keys, please proceed to Purin Hall, (2600 E. Kenwood Blvd.), where you will need to find street parking. (it is your responsibility to follow all parking signs and to pay any meters).


For the ease of traffic flow (and because we don’t know what snowfall will look like), we ask you use these directions instead of any other GPS or map service’s directions. From I-43, take the Capitol Drive exit and proceed East. Follow Capitol Drive across the Milwaukee River until you reach Downer Avenue. Turn right on Downer and proceed south to Hartford Avenue. Turn right on Hartford Avenue. Follow Hartford for one block and turn right on Maryland Avenue. Sandburg Hall will be on your right.
