Check-in will be held all day. You will be sent your assigned check-in time and details on where you will pick up your keys in your arrival email in July.

Returning Students: August 16–17, 2021

The entrance to Olwell and Behnken Halls is off 1200 East. To get there, turn west on Westminster Ave. from 1300 East. Staff and signs will guide you toward parking for Olwell and Behnken Halls to unload your items.
In order to build community with your fellow floormates, mandatory floor and security meetings will be held on move-in day at either 7:00 p.m. or 8:00 p.m. Do not make plans for this time. You will receive information about this when you arrive to your room. Your meeting will take place on campus. If you move in early, you will be required to attend the meeting that occurs on move-in day.
Since Westminster's ability to manage and store large quantities of shipped items is limited, students are not encouraged to ship items ahead of their arrival. Students who live at a distance that prevents them from being able to drive their items into the city can arrange to have things shipped to arrive on campus after the official move-in weekend. These students are strongly advised to travel with everything they will need for the first few days of living in the residence halls until they have access to their mailed items.
Any student is allowed to have a car on campus. Should you decide to bring your car to campus, you must register it and pay for a parking permit that will allow you to park in one of the parking areas on campus.
Student IDs are necessary for access to any residence hall after move-in day and for your meal plan. Your ID has a chip in it and acts like a debit card—you will need it each time you spend money in the cafeteria. You can pick up a student ID during scheduled hours in the Health, Wellness, and Athletic Center on or before move-in day.
Do not include your room or building information in your address. All mail should be sent to:
1840 South 1300 East
Salt Lake City, UT 84105
