On Campus Residents Move-in
New undergraduate international students who will live on campus are scheduled to move into their residence halls on Wednesday, August 17th. Please note the date and instructions for international student move-in are different from other undergraduate students to allow for your attendance at special events, including International Student Orientation, and additional time to adjust to campus.
On campus residents should plan to arrive August 17th between the hours of 8:00AM and 12:00AM (midnight) and report to The Commons Center. ID cards will be available for pick-up at The Commons Center. Student volunteers and ISSS staff will greet you and provide assistance in moving to your room.
The Commons Center is located at 267 Appleton Place, Nashville TN – directly off of 18th Avenue South. Take 18th Avenue South to Horton Avenue to pull up directly in front of The Commons Center. Click Here for a campus map.
