Moving In At Elmhurst

Welcome to Residence Life at Elmhurst College!

As you pack for your move to the College, First-Year students are asked to review our First-Year Student Move-In Game Plan, as well as the Residence Life FAQs for information on everything you'll need to know about when you move-in, where you need to go and what you need to bring.

To find the location of your new residence, first find your room assignment on MyHousing and then use the Campus map to help locate your residence hall, apartment or house. The process of moving in varies by term, so please review the move-in schedule for your specific term and move-in time.

Shipping your belongings to campus.
If it is not practical to bring your things with you, they may be shipped separately. The address is:

Resident Student's Name
Elmhurst College
190 Prospect Ave.
Elmhurst, IL 60126  

The mailroom staff will hold all packages for the resident student's arrival. Resident students should come to the Frick Center, Lower Level, Mailroom and present their I.D. to receive their packages.

Move-In Packet
As part of move-in you will receive a Room Condition Report.  Please examine your room/apartment/house and note the condition of the listed items. This form will be used when you check out to determine if there are any damages or repairs that are your responsibility.

The packet will also contain:

  • tips for successfully living with a roommate & conversation starter
  • instructions for connecting a computer to the internet
  • information on setting up your campus phone and voice maibox

Renter's Insurance
Every student is encouraged to insure his/her personal property as the College does not assume responsibility for loss due to theft or damage to property caused by fire, water, vandalism, or any other cause. In many cases, students still residing with family may be covered by the policy for the family residence. Please check with your insurance agent. Another source is National Student Services (NSS), a company that is independent from Elmhurst College. Elmhurst College makes no representations regarding the accuracy of the information contained on the NSS web site or regarding the nature or quality of the services provided by NSS.
