Changes in Move-In Weekend Due to Hurricane Irene

 To All Students:

We are watching the progress of Hurricane Irene for purposes of ensuring the safety of all of our students.   We will be posting updates on USM's website and on our Storm Line (780-4800).  

In addition, we have a number of students who are planning to move in to our Residence Halls this weekend.  In order to ensure a safe and convenient check-in this weekend, we are providing you with this additional information:

  • NEW residence hall students should plan to check in, as planned, between 8 am and noon on Saturday morning. 
  • We are now encouraging ALL RETURNING RESIDENTIAL STUDENTS to arrive and  check in between 8 a.m. and noon on Saturday. Returning students may still check in on Sunday BUT, the current weather report for Sunday morning indicates that doing so may be challenging.
  • If you do choose to arrive for check in anytime after noon on Saturday, any changes in check in procedures will be available at the front entrance of each residence hall.

Updates and information about changes to Monday's first-day-of-classes schedule also will be posted on the USM website on an ongoing basis throughout the weekend.

Please also note that any emergency needs can always be addressed by contacting USM Public Safety at 780-5211.

Thank you for your flexibility and we look forward to greeting all of our residents over the weekend, and all of our students during the upcoming week.

Director, Residential Life
