Move-in weekend, it's almost as exciting as your favorite holiday
Freshmen will receive housing assignments towards the end of July and may move in to their residence hall on the Friday or Saturday before orientation week in August. On both days there will be students available to assist with moving. Upperclassmen may begin moving in on that Sunday.
Commonly asked questions about
What type of airline or bus service can we use to get to Terre Haute?
Several major airlines currently service the Indianapolis International Airport, but do not have connecting flights to Terre Haute. However, the Indianapolis airport is only a one-hour drive from campus. If you find it impossible to arrange travel by way of Terre Haute, a representative from Rose-Hulman can pick you up in Indianapolis for your initial arrival this fall, but it would be your responsibility to make future transportation arrangements. There is also a Greyhound Bus Station in Terre Haute. If you need to be picked up from the Terre Haute Greyhound Bus Station, please notify the Student Affairs office in advance so that arrangements can be made. The Student Affairs Office provides shuttle service to and from the Indianapolis Airport during scheduled breaks throughout the year. There is a $25 charge each way and students must make an online reservation in advance to secure a seat on the shuttle. Students are notified by email when the reservation window opens for each shuttle period. Airport shuttle dates and times.
Can I send luggage in advance?
Yes. New students may send some of their luggage and boxes ahead of their arrival if they cannot transport everything to campus themselves. While our space is limited, we keep these items as organized as possible so that retrieval is fairly quick. Items can be retrieved at the Mail Distribution Center. Please clearly label each item as belonging to an incoming freshman or transfer student as we may not have your information entered in the package tracking system ahead of time.
