First-Year Student Move-In Information
First-Year Student Move-In Day is Friday, Aug. 14, 2020.
Check-in will be held from 1–5:00 p.m. You must arrive during this designated time to keep your room reservation. There are no early move-ins, unless you are in one of the Early Start Programs.
The entrance to Hogle Hall is off 1200 East. To get there, turn west on Westminster Ave. from 1300 East. Staff and signs will guide you toward Hogle Hall parking to unload your items.
The entrance to Carleson Hall is off 1300 East. Staff and signs will guide you toward Carleson Hall and parking to unload your items.
Olwell and Behnken Halls
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.
Mandatory Floor and Security Meetings
In order to build community with your fellow floor mates, mandatory floor and security meetings will be held on move-in day from 8–9:30 p.m. We ask that you do not make plans for this time. Your meeting will take place in your residence hall. If you move in early, you will be required to attend the meeting that occurs on move-in day.
Shipping Items to Campus
Since our ability to manage and store large quantities of shipped items is limited, we encourage students not 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. Residential Overnight Parking Permits cost $200 and are valid until August 2019. You can buy parking permits online with a credit card.
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.

Campus Technology Support
Westminster supports both Windows and Mac computers. On campus, computers are equipped with Windows 7, the Microsoft Office Suite, multiple web browsers, and many more academic applications. The Information Services department staffs a support phone, 801.832.2023, 7 days a week that students may call for technical support. Information Services also maintains technology support resources including do-it-yourself instructions for common technical issues.
Student Laptop Requirements
All incoming students are required to have access to a laptop computer running, at a minimum, Windows 7 or Mac OSX 10.7.1+. At this time, tablet computers are not supported. With a laptop, students will be able to access Westminster Anywhere, a program allowing students to directly access files and academic programs, both in class and at home. Students can certify their laptops for use by visiting the General Computer Lab, located in the Giovale Library.
Computer Account Resources
Every student account includes an email address, 2GB of backed-up network storage space, Wi-Fi access, and access to academic software. Students also have access to Office 365, allowing them to use the Office Suite online or on their own computer. Residential students also have access to the RecNet network, which supports personal devices such as Xbox, Roku, AppleTV, and others. Informational sessions on computer accounts, Office 365, and how to set up RecNet are held during New Student Orientation. If you are unable to attend orientation, you may visit the General Computer lab for assistance.
1300 East Construction
1300 East is closed to through-traffic between 1700 South and 1300 South. Detours from north of campus will still allow access to Westminster via 1300 East, 1700 South, and 1200 East.
