Moving Into Brockport: Step-By-Step Guide

The College at Brockport kicks off the 2019-20 academic year with Welcome Week from August 22–31.

Welcome Week is packed with events and information organized to help introduce incoming students to the Golden Eagle community. When it comes to moving in, families can sit back and leave it to the 500 volunteers.

Move-in parking

Step One: Find parking.

You’ll want to park in the lot nearest your residence hall and leave your belongings in your vehicle. View a printable campus map.

Move-in check-in

Step Two: Walk to your residence hall.

Inside, students will check in and receive any keys they may need.

Move-in volunteers

Step Three: Meet your volunteers.

Students and families will be directed to tents set up outside. Volunteers will meet you there and take a golf cart and trailer back to your vehicle. (It’s possible there could be a slight wait, anywhere from five to 20 minutes.)

Residence hall room

Step Four: Head to your room.

Volunteers will help load up your belongings and bring them to your assigned room. The way Brockport runs move-in, this should happen in one trip.

Packing tip: Bring your stuff organized into boxes or containers that can be carried without loose items falling out. The only items volunteers won’t assist in moving are futons or large furniture.

What you need to know before you move in:

Traffic patterns on campus may be different from usual when you arrive. Residence Drive will be a one-way, operating for westward traffic.
