Fall 2013 Check-In Information

We hope the information on this page will assist you in planning your arrival for the 2013-14 academic year. In addition to the information below, you may want to check the FAQ , Policies and Procedures, Residence Hall Calendar and the Housing  section of our website to find additional important information and answers to questions you may have. If you still have questions, please feel free to contact Residential Life at 570-321-4046 or by email reslife@lycoming.edu.

During the summer, residential students should receive an informational mailing from Residential Life including a New Student Summer Newsletter or an Upperclass Student Summer Newsletter as well as information about linens. If you do not receive the mailing and the newsletter, you should contact us to make sure there is not an issue with your registration/housing for the 2013-14 year.

Room Assignment

You can verify your room assignment* and roommate information in Web Advisor. If you have forgotten your password or have a problem logging into Web Advisor, please contact IT Services at 570-321-4150. Web Advisor provides your room number, campus mailbox # and combination, and the name, address and telephone number for your roommate(s). New students who did NOT attend an orientation session over the summer will not be able to access this information online but may call the Residential Life or Freshman Dean's Office for their room and roommate information. New student room assignments are not posted until ALL orientation sessions are complete. For a period of time after the last orientation and until the majority of new student assignments are entered, room assignment/roommate information (for both new and returning students) will not be available in Web Advisor. By the end of July, all students (new and returning) who have made the necessary payments and completed required paperwork should be able to view their room/roommate assignment. If you are still not seeing this information when you log in to Web Advisor, you should contact the Housing Coordinator at 570-321-4147 as soon as possible.

Room dimensions/hall information is now available directly through the Res Life webpage. Select the "Campus Housing" link on the left sidebar and then select your specific hall from the list on the bottom of the page. For more information about what is and isn't provided in campus residences, please see the "FAQ" link also on the left side of this page.
