Student Move-In Process and Schedule
Move-in for residential students will be scheduled by Residence Life consistent with the following timeline. In July, students will receive a sign-up sheet from Residence Life to schedule their move-in appointment on the designated dates. Students’ timely completion of Salem’s Pre-Entry Screening and Safety Requirements is a condition of move-in.
For health and safety purposes, students who have been approved for the COVID-19 vaccine exemption or extension or any student who is not fully vaccinated by move-in, must present a negative COVID-19 test to Health Services at the time of move-in. Students must obtain their COVID-19 test no more than 72 hours prior to move-in. PCR or Antigen tests will be accepted. Students who test positive must not report to campus for move-in and must complete an isolation period per Salem and recommended CDC guidelines. Once the isolation period is complete, the student will be reassigned a move-in date.
Students and their designated move-in helpers will be required to follow our COVID-19 Move-In Safety Guidelines and Expectations and to contact Salem as directed prior to arriving on campus if they meet any of the Conditions Requiring Move-In Rescheduling. Students and their designated helpers will be required to sign the Move-In Acknowledgement agreeing to abide by these guidelines as a condition of Residence Life confirming their move-in appointment.
