Residential Student Move-In Day

Move-In Day

New residential students (including transfer students) should plan to move into their Residence Halls on Friday, August 27th between 9am and 11am. New students returning to campus on the morning on 8/27 will need to first report to the Griswold Theatre Lobby in the Karen Sprague Cultural Arts Center to finalize any paperwork due to the College and pick up their student ID. New Student Orientation begins at 1:00pm on August 27th, so it is important that students plan their arrival accordingly.

When arriving at the Griswold Lobby, please park in the “I” Lot on the corner of Maynard and State Street and enter through the Griswold Lobby. Once you receive you student ID, you’ll be cleared to move into your perspective Residence Hall. For full Move-In Day Logistics visit www.aic.edu/movein.

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation will begin at 1:00pm on Friday, August 27th and will be a mixture of in-person, remote synchronous (live) sessions, online training modules, and outdoor events following Massachusetts safety protocols and guidelines for physical distancing.

Students are encouraged to attend as many orientation sessions as possible. Have questions? Call the Student Life Office at 413.205.3915 or email studentlife@aic.edu.
