Bryant has 17 progressive residence halls, from traditional first-year housing, to suites, to more than 100 townhouse-style apartments for upperclass students. Campus housing is available to students for all four years.
Welcome to the Bryant campus community! Soon you will be preparing to return to campus or move in for the very first time. We want to make sure you have all the information you will need for your arrival.
We ask that all students and families review the list of prohibited items prior to purchasing or bringing items to campus. The list has been updated and changed; we strongly encourage upperclass students to review the list so they are not surprised on move-in day.
Campus opening dates:
|First-Year Students:||Saturday, Sept. 1, 2012
Sunday, Sept. 2, 2012
Mailed home with your fall housing assignment was the Campus Arrival Brochure, outlining the change to the early arrival policy in the Terms and Conditions of the Occupancy and Board Contract.
Over the past few years we have had numerous requests to arrive early to campus, but unfortunately, we are unable to grant those requests for a few very important reasons. Bryant residence halls are a bustling and dynamic place all summer long and to ensure that rooms are prepared and inspected properly, we cannot allow students to move in before their designated date.
Students should make arrangements to arrive on campus on the date they were assigned.
