Move In Information >>>

Move In for the 2014 -15 academic year is scheduled for Saturday & Sunday, August 16 & 17.  Incoming students will be assigned a day and time to move in and will be notified after Setting Sail.

Residential housing policies for incoming transfer students differs from our traditional student requirements. Transfer students are not required to live on campus and therefore, are not guaranteed a room on campus. The residential experience is designed for students who reach 17 to 22 years of age by September 1 of the fall semester. Students who are younger or older than the previously stated ages will receive consideration on a case by case basis.

Due to limited availability, assignments are made on a first come, first serve basis. Therefore, it is important that you submit your Housing Contract Acceptance form and deposit as soon as possible. 

To submit your contract and deposit, complete the New Upper Class Contract Acceptance form, then print a hard copy. Be sure to sign and date your contract then mail to: 

Office of University Housing
Christopher Newport University
Gosnold 205
1 Avenue of the Arts
Newport News, VA 23606-3072

Students will be notified of their room assignments as they are placed by the Office of University Housing. A letter and move-in information will be sent once you have received a room assignment.
