Residents in USH communities are strongly encouraged to participate in our Drop & Go Program. USH will open its Drop & Go Program on designated nights which allows residents to bring furniture and other large items to their residence hall suite before their scheduled Move-in Day. USH will open for the Drop & Go Program from 4:00pm to 8:00pm rain or shine on selected nights. The drivable sidewalks will NOT be opened for the Drop & Go Program. Each resident will receive their Drop & Go date in their room assignment sent out by or before the beginning of July.


All residents are strongly encouraged to participate in Drop and Go. By utilizing this program residents can avoid the hassle, traffic, and limited time frame in which to unload their vehicles on Move-In Day.
Your specific Drop & Go date is outlined in your assignment email, but is also outlined below. You are only permitted to participate on your scheduled date. This program will occur on the dates below, rain or shine. You may arrive at any time during the program, starting at 4:00PM, but the building will close promptly at 8:00 PM. The start and end times are not negotiable.
