We oversee the planning and logistics of new and returning student arrival and move-in, storage, housing placement/selection processes, room key distribution, covid protocols, and more.

Also, our Community Safety Team collaborates with students and staff to improve the social wellbeing of the student community via deliberate planning, cross-campus communication, and effective exercise of personal and collective responsibility.
