Due to President Obama’s visit to Scranton on Friday, August 23, Interstate 81 (I-81), North and South, will be intermittently closed throughout the day between Wilkes-Barre and Scranton, PA. Marywood University is located in Scranton.
Local law enforcement suggests that travelers to the Scranton area chose the early morning or late afternoon hours on August 23 in order to avoid delays.
Please consider alternate routes to Marywood University if traveling on I-81 between Wilkes-Barre and Scranton in the late morning or early afternoon of August 23.
Welcome! We look forward to your arrival on campus! Check-in for new First-Year (Freshmen) and Transfer students will be held on Friday, August 23, from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm at the locations identified below.
When you arrive at your designated check-in location, you will:
1.) Present a photo ID.
2.) Complete a Resident Student Information Card availble online HERE. This card serves as a resource about you which would be used by our office in the case of an emergency situation. Although copies will be available at check-in, downloading the card through the link above and completing it in advance, and bringing the completed card with you to check-in will speed up your check-in process.
3.) Receive your student ID if you have already had your picture taken.
4.) Complete a Room Condition Form (RCF) with a Residence Life staff member to verify the condition of your room. Please review the condition of the room carefully as the information on the RCF will be used as the basis for assessing damages charges when you check-out of your room.

For your convenience we've developed a list of Suggested Items to bring with you from home. For your safety and security, there are items not permitted in University Housing. Please view the list of these Prohibited Items.
Bring your completed Health History, Physical and Immunization Record if you have not already submitted it to Student Health Services. This form is required of all residential students.
Bring compliance information that you have either received the meningitis vaccination or signed an informed consent waiver, if you have not already submitted this information to Student Health Services. Compliance with this state law is required of all residential students.
Complete the Resident Student Information Card (which will be sent during the summer for students arriving in the fall semester) and bring it with you to check-in. Please do not mail this form.
Pack carefully. In most cases, you are sharing a room with at least one other individual who also needs equal access to the room. If possible, plan to bring just the necessities at first and adjust during the year.
One of the first things you will do when you check into your room will be to verify the condition of your room. Before you move your items in, you will be asked to identify any existing conditions in the room -- such as paint chips, marks on the walls, etc. Please do this carefully as another assessment will be conducted at the end of the year and charges may be applied for any differences in room condition.
Plan to attend mandatory Residence Life meetings which will occur over the course of the weekend. Specific times, dates and locations for each living area will be announced at check-in. Both Marywood University and Housing and Residence Life policies and procedures will be reviewed and you will receive information on how to obtain your campus mailbox key.
Enjoy the remainder of your summer!
As a reminder, you may submit your Housing and Residence Life paperwork prior to completing your Health History--they can be submitted separately.
