Continuing & Readmitted Students
|Residence Hall Check-In for continuing students (including readmitted students and students returning from study abroad) will be 9am-5pm on Saturday, August 31, & Sunday, September 1, 2013. You will be required to show your Student ID to pick up your keys and to be permitted entry into your residence hall.
If you will be arriving late or after the day(s) of check-in, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your 1) name, 2) room assignment, and 3) expected arrival date/time. If you do not check in by the first day of classes or have not made arrangements to check in late, you may forfeit your room assignment.
Only students officially involved in coordinating NSOP activities (ex. Orientation Leaders) will receive permission to check-in early prior to the Continuing & Readmitted Check In Weekend (Saturday & Sunday, August 31 & September 1). Students who do receive permission to check-in early are not allowed to give access to campus housing to other students (or their belongings) who do not have early check-in permission.
* Measurements on residence hall floor plans are approximate. We encourage you to refrain from purchasing and/or cutting carpets, drapes. etc. until you move into your room and take exact measurements.
The area in front of each residence hall is reserved for unloading only.
Please do not leave your car double parked without someone in it. Unattended and/or double parked cars block others from accessing the buildings and may be ticketed or towed by NYPD.
For a list of parking garages and rates, please visit http://barnard.edu/visit/parking.
A limited number of carts will be available for use from the front desk of each residence hall. A $20 CASH deposit and a photo ID is required to borrow a cart for one hour.
Please consult this list for recommended and prohibited items. Save yourself room in your car, suitcase, etc, by leaving things behind that are not allowed!
Because space is tight, we encourage students to bring only the essentials. It's easier to purchase needed items after you move in than bringing too many belongings with you and not having room to storage them. Additionally, we encourage you to refrain from purchasing and/or cutting carpets, drapes. etc. until you move into your room and take exact measurements.
All students receive their mail & packages* at Student Mail Services in Altschul (students keep their mailbox all 4 years). Mail & packages must not be addressed to the student's building & room number (they will be returned to sender).
Please note that Student Mail Services will not accept any packages or mail for students until 3 days before a student's check-in day (ex. packages & mail for First Year students will be accepted starting Thursday, August 22, 2013). If you are sending items via the mail, UPS, FedEx, etc; please instruct them not to deliver the packages until that date or later.
For more information about packages and mail (including how to find out your mailbox number and combination), please visit barnard.edu/reslife/services/mail-and-packages.
* Students in Cathedral Gardens ONLY may receive packages (not mail) at CG (more information).
If you stored items over the summer with SummerStorage.org, the company will be bringing boxes back to campus on Sunday, September 1 (between 10am-2pm). They will be lined up on Broadway near the main gate with boxes in alphabetical order.
During the 4-hour window, students should retrieve their own boxes. The College cannot store or hold on to anyone's boxes should they go unclaimed. If you are not present to retrieve your boxes, please contact SummerStorage.com to coordinate appointing another student to claim your boxes.
For more information or questions, please contact Mr. Angelo Reda at (516) 729-5169 or email@example.com.
The College and Residential Life & Housing are committed adopting sustainable practices. Help us save the environment by planning a "Green" move-in!
For more information about recycling and "being green" on-campus, visit http://barnardecoreps.com.
If you would like to rent a refrigerator for your room, check out Collegiate Storage & Rental. Renting a fridge instead buying one means you don't have to worry about finding a place to store it for the summer or taking it back home.
Elliott residents: please note that only the smaller cube refrigerator fits into the special fridge alcove in your room. If you wish to rent a larger refrigerator, we encourage you to wait until after you move-in to see if you will have the floor space available for it.
Computer labs are provided in the Quad, 616, and Plimpton Halls and in academic buildings (Lab locations).
