Checking into the Dorm

McCoy Hall (under 18)

Students and parents will be greeted by Hopkins staff outside of McCoy Hall for check-in. Students should first check in to their housing assignments beginning at 12:00 PM.

From there, parents will be able to walk back to the dorm.

During dormitory check-in, students will receive access cards, lanyards and their room keys. After students check in, they should proceed to their rooms and drop off any belongings. Once settled, students and parents should proceed to check-in which will be included in their check-in information.
