Move in for New Students

Move In - What you need to know

Dear Chaps

We are so ready for your arrival to campus. Move-in Day is always an exciting day because of the anticipation, the energy, and how it serves as a pillar for new beginnings.  This new beginning, like in all of society, is full of change and doing things differently.  We embrace this newness with faith, optimism, and compassion for others. We welcome you as new students, parents, family, and friends, and we do so in the safest way possible.

Our goal is for the move-in experience to be welcoming, informative, organized, and safe as possible.  We believe the mission of LCU is lived out best in face-to-face community, inside and outside of the classroom.  Move-in Day is an important step in establishing a culture where “We will put the interests of our fellow LCU community members, those with whom we live, learn, and work, before our own. We accept personal responsibility to wear a face covering, practice proper hygiene (e.g., hand washing), and social distancing per established guidelines. As a community who follows the path of Jesus, we agree to put the well-being of others ahead of our own.”

This page is the resource hub for Move-in Day.  Information pertaining to sign up for a move-in time, designated check-in locations for specific residence halls, and protocols for how to maneuver the process.  See the Do’s and Don’ts section for quick answers to questions.  Welcome to life at LCU and all the unique opportunities of this upcoming academic year.

Go Chaps!
