Move In Information for Stephenson Complex

Drive to Stephenson Complex - from Stadium Way you will turn onto Nevada Street. Look for the parking staff and temporary parking signage directing you to your assigned hall. Stephenson East and South residents will be directed to active unloading zones in the gray parking lot while Stephenson North residents will be directed to active unloading zones in the green parking lot.

To check-in, you will need to go to the main entrance located in the center of the complex. Stephenson South and Stephenson East will check in at the Conference Room. Stephenson North check in at the piano lounge. There will be signage and volunteers who can direct you. Check in with your Cougar Card or photo ID. If you need a moving cart look for move-in volunteers.

As parking is at a premium, once your car is unloaded, you must move it to a parking lot. Parking staff will be on site to assist you with directions on best parking lot options.

Extra recycling containers are brought in specifically for move-in. Please pay attention to where you are disposing of garbage versus recycling.

For hanging items on your walls in Stephenson Complex please use blue painters tape for posters, and 3M Command strips to hang pictures. If you use 3M Command strips, please do not remove the strips; our staff will remove them over the summer if the room needs to be painted. Do not use double-sided mounting products, permanent mounting products, blue mounting putty, tacks or push pins, masking tape, or duct tape. Stephenson has several walls with wall carpeting; please use tacks and pins on these walls, never use 3M Command strips.

Words of Wisdom from Past Students and Parents

Rooms are smaller than you think. Spend some time looking at the photos and room dimensions and be realistic with what will fit. 

Review what you can’t bring – the list is specific for each hall.
