Move-In Information

New Student Move-in 


We were excited to welcome all new students for the 2022-2023 academic year to campus on August 20th, 2022 and we are looking forward to a fantastic year ahead!

Please visit back during summer 2023 for updates about new student move-in for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Campus Safety, Orientation staff, and Housing and Residence Life staff will direct you as you arrive.

  • Students can retrieve their ID cards inside the building and volunteers will start to unload your vehicle.
  • The driver must stay in the vehicle. Once fully unloaded, the driver will be directed to a parking lot.

Residence Hall Street Addresses:

  • Loughran Hall - 1406 University Avenue, Dunmore, PA 18509
  • Regina Hall - 100 Morgan Road, Dunmore, PA 18509
  • Madonna Hall - 1306 University Avenue, Dunmore, PA 18509
  • Woodland Residences - 2500 North Washington Avenue, Scranton, PA 18509

Things to Remember:

In general, lofting or bunking beds will not be permitted. University personnel will not adjust bed heights during check-in or throughout the school year.

Please make sure that you bring a wastebasket and shower curtain with you, as the University does not provide these items. 

We strongly advise reviewing the "What to Bring" and "What NOT to Bring" lists available on the Marywood University Housing & Residence Life website as well as the Resident Manual.

  • Students receive a Fall Housing Confirmation email in mid-August, detailing check-in dates, times, and locations.
  • Upon arrival, each resident must complete a Room Condition Form (RCF) which is a written documentation of the student's room condition. This form is used for the assessment of any damages that may occur throughout the year.
  • The Room Condition Form is to be signed and kept on file by Housing and Residence Life staff until checkout. If a student does not sign the Room Condition Form, the description provided by the Residence life staff will be considered a true and accurate assessment of the room's condition.
  • Students changing rooms mid-year are responsible for verifying the condition of the room they are leaving, and for completing an RCF of the newly assigned space.

All residential students are required to submit a completed Health History, Physical, and Immunization Record to the Student Health Services Office. This form includes the requirement for proof of Meningococcal Meningitis Vaccination.

In June 2002, a law was signed by the governor, which requires vaccination against meningococcal meningitis for all students living in University housing or in other University-owned housing throughout Pennsylvania. The University must have records indicating that every resident student has been vaccinated (or signed an informed consent waiver form), in order for students to live in University Housing. Students may choose to be exempted from the law, only if the student (or parent/legal guardian, if the student is under eighteen years of age), after having been advised of the risk of the disease and the availability and effectiveness of the vaccine, signs a waiver form stating that s/he reviewed the information and has chosen not to be vaccinated against the disease.

Please use The Student Health Portal for all other needs.
