Moving In

Are you ready to live in the residence halls? We are looking forward to your arrival this Fall!

To coordinate check-in dates during the academic year, please email residencehalls@bigbend.edu

Check-In procedures

Check-in will be from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm and from 2:00 pm- 5:00 pm.

Students arrive on campus, go directly to the Residence Hall

Students will need to be checked in at the residence hall table located in our courtyard. Students will need to know their BBCC ID number and have a form of identification.

ResLife staff will conduct a tour of the ResHall facilities and escort the resident to their room and conduct a Room Condition Report with the resident.

Guests

The resident and their family members may enter the residence hall to unpack and help the student settle in during move-in. No visitor check-in is required.

Vehicles

To help aid the check-in process we ask that only vehicles needed for unpacking be parked in front of the Residence Halls. All other vehicles can park in the lot in front of the ResHalls (see image below).
