For the fall semester, incoming first-year and transfer students arrive on campus and check-in at their assigned residence hall on a Saturday in late August. Check-in for returning students begins the following week — either at the Office of Residential Life or the Office of Campus Safety depending on the exact date of arrival.

For the spring semester, residences open for all students in mid-January.

Students may not move in before the designated check-in date unless they have permission to arrive early for athletics or another official campus group.

All residence halls require Kenyon student ID card swipe access.

A complete list of dates and deadlines for the current academic year are included in the residential life calendar.
