Spring Housing Confirmation and Information


The Residence Life and Housing staff is excited to welcome you to campus for the spring semester! Please review all the information below thoroughly, as many of your questions will be answered.

Housing Information: Visit your MyRedlands Housing Portal to see your hall, room, and roommate(s)/suitemate(s) assignments. When reviewing the information under Room Assignments on the homepage, give particular attention to the room numbers to understand those that are roommate(s) versus suitemate(s) in rooms with suite-style bathrooms. Click on a student's name to contact them via email.

Meal Plan: Meal plans will be activated beginning with brunch on Sunday, January 8th. All students living on-campus are required to have a meal plan and new students have initially been assigned the 19 Meals Per Week (19MPW) meal plan. To view your current meal plan or to make a change, please visit the MyRedlands Housing Portal by Friday, January 13th. Visit the Harvest Table website for more information about meal plans and rates.

  • Click on Meal Plans, click on Dining Plans, and then select Spring 2023 from the menu located to the right of the Filter box.
  • The meal plan currently assigned to you will be listed. Click on a different meal plan option under Change my Meal Plan and click Purchase Meal Plan to change your plan.
  • A record of your meal plan selection history will be listed, with the one at the top being the plan currently assigned and being charged to your student account.

Move-in Day: New students will arrive for New Student Orientation and move-in on Saturday, January 7th. All returning students who need to move-in will do so on Sunday, January 8th. Each of the move-in days will be by appointment only, with times between 8-10 AM, with sign-ups through the MyRedlands Housing Portal. Please note, students with a balance due on their student account will not see the scheduler or be permitted to move into their housing assignment until settled with Student Financial Services.

  • Click on Select a Time Block under Assignments, located on the home page, to reveal the arrival times available on your assigned move-in day.
  • Once you make a selection, click on Update My Time to secure your appointment. Be aware the times are reflective of your current location, so if you are outside of pacific standard time, be sure to take into account the time-zone difference.
  • In order to maintain the integrity of the move-in process, arrive promptly within the 15-minutes of your move-in timeframe. Should you arrive late, you will be instructed to return at a later specified time.

Halls Reopen: For students already residing on-campus, including the apartment and organizational houses, the communities will reopen on Sunday, January 8th at 10 AM.

Early Arrivals: Some students, new and returning, will move-in earlier than the published arrival dates as they are members of an Early Arrival Group. These students have prior permission to check-in at a different date/time and will receive additional information about move-in from their group's representative. These students will not see the Move-in Appointment Time scheduler. Should a student want to arrive earlier than their arranged time, they may fill out the Early Arrival Request form on the MyRedlands Housing Portal under Applications and Forms to arrive one day prior to their scheduled arrival date for an additional cost of $100.

Empty Space: In the event you have an empty space in your room or apartment, now or in the future, a roommate will be assigned to you. For this reason, remember the bed and furniture for this space must remain available at all times. If you have an idea of who you would like to move into this space, please communicate that information with RLH@redlands.edu as soon as possible. We cannot guarantee requests will be met, but will do our best.

May Term and Hall Closures: Only students enrolled in a May Term course are able to live on campus during May Term. All students not in a May Term course will move out by Sunday, April 23rd at 2 PM. Students who are enrolled in May Term should also know many of the communities will close for May Term (likely East, Fairmont, Grove, Melrose, Williams, and others), meaning those residents will be provided new assignments to move to on Sunday, April 30th between 8-10 AM. Please keep in mind for this reason, students in the halls that remain open will be assigned new roommates for May Term.

Should you have any questions, please email Residence Life and Housing at RLH@redlands.edu.

Best wishes,
