  6. Select a time for your arrival to move-in on your expected date.

Check-In Dates:

  • August 16, 2023: For students that need the required Orientation
    • New incoming first year students that are registered for session 4 of Orientation
  • August 18, 2023: New to campus students will be permitted to move into the Residence Halls
  • August 19, 2023: Returning students will be permitted to move into the Residence Halls

You will receive instructions for a drive-through check-in process starting at Winthrop Lake (1162 Eden Terrace, Rock Hill, SC 29730). There you will receive your room key and check in. You will then proceed to your assigned residence hall on the main campus to move in.

Parking lots/spaces immediately outside of your residence hall will be Unload Only Areas.  You should pull up to the unload area and should unload your belongings onto the curb before moving your vehicle to parking at the Cherry Road Lot (Lot F on Parking Map).  You will be allowed 10 minutes to unload your vehicle.  Once you have parked your vehicle, you will return and begin moving your belongings to your room.

Students participating in early arrival groups must have an invitation from the sponsoring department. No early arrivals outside of prearranged groups are allowed.

New Students

  • Detailed information about your arrival date can be found in your Pre Check-In Confirmation e-mail.
  • If you are planning to bring a car to campus, you will need to purchase a parking permit from the Winthrop University Police Department. Additional details regarding permit cost can be found by logging on to the online parking permit request page. For students, when a vehicle is registered with the Winthrop University Police Department, the cost of the parking permit is automatically charged to your student account. Students can pick up their parking pass at the Winthrop University Police Department when they arrive on campus.
  • It's never too early to begin the packing process. Start by knowing what you can bring to campus (PDF-502KB) this year in addition to what items are prohibited (PDF-406KB) in the residence halls.
    • Loft Pick-Up: If you purchased a loft bed from Timbernest you can pick it up on Friday August 18, 2023 from 8am-3pm at the loading dock of Dalton Hall on Winthrop's main campus. If you are interested in learning more about TimberNest Lofts click here.
  • All residence halls have elevators except Margaret Nance and Roddey Halls. Residence Life does have a limited number of moving bins; however, we recommend you bring a handcart for your move-in if you own one.

Required Quarantine & Isolation Plan

All residential students must submit a Quarantine & Isolation plan of action to Residence Life in Eaglesnest outlining their intentions of where they will go to quarantine or isolate. You will submit your plan when selecting your move-in time slot during your Pre Check-In Process.

Example: If I were to need quarantine & isolation housing, I will drive to my home in Irmo, SC and stay with my family. I will have a place to stay for the necessary time I need to quarantine and/or isolate. If for some reason I were unable to go home, I will stay with my aunt in Simpsonville, SC.
