Housing: Solutions for preparing for the Tuesday move-in

NOTE: Students should also check their Union student e-mail account for detailed information sent yesterday from Dean Thornbury about the move-in process. Additional information is below.

McAfee students moving out of McAfee or to another McAfee apartment were asked to move out of McAfee on Sunday in order for crews to come in for cleaning to get ready for the new residents.

We know that many students may not be able to return by Sunday or need a place to keep their things during this process. If they need help getting someone to move out their items, or if they need some storage room, please call (731) 661-1225 to have their belongings placed on a trailer and then removed from the trailer next week. Dr. Darin White is the only person with the key which will help ensure a secure process.

If a student wants to come down early and needs housing for a night or two, please call (731) 616-9509 to talk about temporary housing. We have many host homes that are interested in helping, even if only for a night or two.

In order to expand Tuesday move-in times to help students, here are additional move in times that may help create a better flow to the day.

- 9 a.m.-10 a.m. Students moving from McAfee to The Jett
- 10 a.m.-11 a..m. Students moving from one McAfee apartment to another McAfee apartment
- 11 a.m.-12 p.m. Students with last names A-M, who have all belongings at present should move in at McAfee and The Jett
- 12 p.m.-1 p.m. Students with last names N-Z, who have all belongings at present should move in at McAfee and The Jett

We still have rooms at The Jett and McAfee, now that we are certain everyone without transportation who needs on campus housing has a McAfee apartment. If you are interested in these two options, call Jennifer Tharp in the Office of Residence Life at (615) 406-1213. We would really love for you to join us on campus or The Jett.
