Freshman Apartments at University Village

Moving In

From moving into your very first suite to making new friends and attending campus activities, there are resources available to help you transition to life on your own.

Your move-in process will begin in the residence hall lobby.

Upon arrival, you will sign documents, pick up your keys and pay your first month’s rent.

You will also be given a room inventory checklist. Use this form to thoroughly inspect your apartment or suite and make sure everything is in working order.

Peer Advisors will be on site and available to help you move into your new home and answer any questions that may arise as you explore campus.

What Should I Bring?
Stock your suite with items to make you feel at home, like photos and mementos, wall décor and plants.

How Do I Pay My Rent?
Rent is due upon move-in. After move-in, rent is due the first day of each month and may be paid by check, money order or credit card. Rent payments are also accepted online. See the step-by-step instructions for additional information.

Comet Card
For those living in the Residence Hall, your Comet Card will be the key to your new suite, will give you access to the building entrance and residential hallways, and be required in order to check out equipment and games from the front desk.  The card will also contain your meal plan information and will be used to gain entrance to the dining hall. If you have any questions, please contact Residential Life at 972-883-5361.
Parking Permits
Parking permits are required for students living on campus with vehicles. Visit the Parking & Transportation Services website for more information.

Who Is Here to Help Me?
