Q. How much is too much to move in?
A. The first thing to do is contact your roommate. Find out what they are bringing so you don't bring double. To make move in as smooth as possible, we ask that you bring only one car load. Experience has shown that students who bring more than this end up taking most of it back home again.

Q. Can students send belongings in advance of their arrival?
A. Due to limited storage space we can only allow international students to send packages before they move in. All packages are sent to a central location where the student must pick them up and carry them to their rooms. There is no transportation provided for this service. At this time we can accept only 2 packages (no larger than 16"x 11"x 16") for any individual person. Any additional items will be returned to the sender.

Q. Are pets allowed?
A. No. Pets are not permitted in the residence halls with the exception of fish (up to a 10 gallon tank).

Q. When will students find out their housing assignments?
A. In the summer, housing assignments for all students will be mailed to their home addresses during the month of August. During the winter, housing assignments will be mailed home during January. This mailing will include the name(s) and contact information of roommate(s) along with general arrival information.

Q. What do I do if I don't like my housing assignment?
A. Although we are committed to helping all students get the best housing arrangement possible, all students must understand that housing of all types are limited and an immediate room change may not be available. If the student is interested in a room change within their own building, they should contact their Residence Director. If the student is interested in moving to a new building, they should visit the Residence Life Office.

Room changes for the first 2 weeks of each semester are generally discouraged so that the Residence Life Office can ascertain where the actual vacancies in each building are.

Q. When do the residence halls open in the fall/spring?
A. Specific move-in day details will be mailed to your home address during August or January prior to the semester of your arrival or you may look at the academic calendar which lists all move in days.

Q. I would like to move in before the check-in date, what do I do?
A. We've worked hard to design a smooth move-in process, which currently requires certain groups of students to arrive on certain days/times. Having extra people on campus during those times can cause extra confusion and large back ups, so early arrivals are highly discouraged. If you feel you have a unique situation, please contact the Residence Life Office at reslife@endicott.edu and state why you are requesting an early arrival.

Q. What does a student do if he or she has roommate problems?
A. Students should first try to discuss their situation with their roommate(s). If they cannot reach an agreement, they should contact their Resident Assistant or their Residence Director who will initiate a roommate mediation and create a roommate agreement. If the roommate mediation fails, either or both students may seek out a room change from the RD. Room changes are made on a space available basis only.
