Meal Plan Information

Meal plans begin with brunch on Saturday, August 27.

If you are choosing to arrive early, you are responsible for your own meals. If you are required to arrive early, your department or sports team may provide some of your meals. Check with them for details.

Pre-Arrival Information

Be sure to check out our What to Bring and What Not to Bring lists. Bring the essentials and then determine what else you might once you have moved into your specific room. Many items can be purchased in town after you arrive.

Linen packs available for purchase with On Campus Marketing (OCM). A portion of the proceeds go directly to the student-led Residence Hall Association.

On Your Move-In Day

Each student may bring guests/helpers along during move-in. If you have a family pet, please leave your furry friends at home as they are not permitted in the halls. 

Parking | Please use designated unloading areas to unload and move in. There are limited hand carts available in and near the halls on a first-come, first-served basis; we recommend bringing your own moving cart or wagon. If you plan to park a vehicle on campus during the year, please visit Parking in Forest Grove to purchase your permit.

Filling Out Room Condition Report (RCRs) | Your RCR records what your room is like before you settle in. We will compare your RCR against the condition of your room after you move out to determine any changes that you may be responsible for. You will get a link to this form upon move-in.

Please complete your RCR the day you move in before putting your belongings away. This will give you the best opportunity to see the pre-existing condition of spaces like your floor, closets, walls, and mattress before they get covered up.

If you do not complete the RCR within 5 days, you may be subject to a $50 improper check-in fee and waive your right to appeal any charges assessed when you move out.

If you have any difficulties, contact a Residence Life staff member for assistance.
