We look forward to having you move in and start the next chapter of your life with us!

Each Residential Learning student receives a detailed packet in the mail over the summer that tells them the name of their dorm building, room number, and names of their roommate(s). Also included in the packet is information on their move-in date and assigned arrival time. Please review our Residential Learning Guide below.

Welcome to Walnut Hill College! Please take a moment to review this information on move-in day, what to bring, and what not to bring.

Arriving On Time: Not Late, but Not Too Early!

We understand that you are excited to start a new adventure in your life–and we are just as excited as you are! Each student will receive a specified move-in time. Please adhere to these times, as it makes everything run smoothly.

What to Bring and What Not to Bring

We will supply a standard twin-size bed, one clothing unit such as a dresser, armoire, or storage closet, and a desk and chair. You will also receive an in-building mailbox and a kitchen and bathroom locker. We will provide combinations for these items on Welcome Home Day.
