We are excited that you are joining us in the residence halls for the 2022-2023 academic year.

All students are required to present a valid photo ID (Driver’s License, State ID, FDU ID, or Passport) at check-in.

Metro:

Move-in will take place in the Multipurpose Room in our Student Union Building from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm on your designated day. 

You are strongly advised to arrive early in the morning on your check-in day. If you require additional assistance with Financial Clearance (Enrollment Services) or Medical Clearance (Student Health Services), an early arrival will allow you the required time to be processed by Enrollment Services & Student Health prior to checking into your room. The check-in stations will close promptly at the published time. Students that arrive closer to an hour before closing time risk not being able to be assisted if they require Financial and/or Medical clearance. Please arrive early to avoid any inconveniences. If you have not yet uploaded your COVID-19 vaccination card to Medicat, please do so. For any questions regarding vaccinations or vaccine requirements, please contact covid19@fdu.edu

*New students – if you have not emailed your photo to dmiles@fdu.edu for Metro and jmat56@fdu.edu for Florham for your FDU ID card, please do so as soon as possible. This will help quicken your check-in process and ensure you have an ID card for moving in.  

 

FDU ID Card:

The ID Card access system in the residence halls requires the use of your FDU ID Card. New Students will receive their FDU ID Card during the check-in process on their move-in day. Returning Students should bring their current FDU ID Card on their move-in day for activation after the check-in process.

  • Medical Clearance: All First-Year & New Students, and first-time resident students, will require medical clearance from FDU Student Health Services prior to moving in to the residence halls. Please make sure all your required medical documents are submitted to Student Health Services prior to your move-in day.
  • Financial Clearance: All students will need to obtain financial clearance, prior to moving into the residence halls, from the Office of Enrollment Services.

Prohibited and Restricted Items:

Certain items are prohibited in the residence halls for safety and security purposes. Whenever possible the item may be returned to the student to take home. After the item is returned, should it be found in the student’s room again, it will become University property and discarded. Review list of Prohibited and Restricted Items.
