Arrival Day/Checking-In

Arrival Day is the first Sunday of the program.  This is a full – and sometimes hectic day -- that begins with moving into the dorm and ends with Orientation. 

Check-In / Move-In

All students report to Pleasants Hall (500 Ukrop Way) for check-in.  Residential Program Assistants (RPAs), who will be living with you in the dorms, will guide you through the check-in process and provide you with everything you need to access the dorm and your room.  

*All students must be on campus and checked-in by 4:00pm on Sunday.*

Check-in Times
Session 1 Session 2

Sunday, June 24


Sunday, July 15


Once students are checked in they will be required to abide by all of NIAHD's rules and regulations.


Signs will be posted outside Pleasants Hall and staff will be visible to direct traffic.  There is limited space near the dorm for unloading vehicles.  Please work quickly to unload vehicles so they can be moved to make space for new arrivals.  We very much appreciate your cooperation in this task.

There are no elevators in the dorms.  Students living on 2nd or 3rd floors will have to carry their belongings upstairs.


Student meal plans begin with dinner on Arrival Day.  NIAHD will not provide breakfast or lunch so students and parents should make prior arrangements for breakfast and lunch that day.

Beginning on Day 2 (Monday) students will be able to get 3 meals/day in the dining halls.
