Fall 2022 OSCA Housing Move in Information

This information is only for members living in OSCA. Members living in ResEd, Village Housing, or off campus will receive information through ResEd.

Move In Dates

The move in time for all freshman and transfer students is Sunday, August 28th from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST. Your HLECs will be waiting at your co-op, either in the lounge or on the porch, to meet you!

Returning students will be moving in on Tuesday, August 30th and Wednesday, August 31st. If you are a returning student arriving before 9 a.m. on 8/30 and have not already let us know, you will not be able to access any of the buildings or your room.

Where to Check In

Both new and returning students will need to also the ResEd Office on the first floor of Stevenson Dining Hall. When you check in there, you’ll tap either your phone or ID card, which will notify the Registrar’s office that you are on campus. You will not need to fill out any additional forms there.

ResEd will be open 8/28 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for freshman and transfer student check-in. They will also be open 8/30 and 8/31 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for returning students.

Students who are returning to campus early will need to check in at the ResEd office. Students who are arriving outside of business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or over the weekend should check in at the ResEd office on the next business day. The ResEd office is located in Griswold Commons, accessible by the center entrance to Stevenson Hall, located at 155 N. Professor St. Oberlin, OH 44074. They are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Submit a Room Condition Report (RCR)

Immediately after accessing your room for the first time, you must submit your RCR. They should only take a few minutes to complete but will ensure that you aren’t charged for any existing damages. If there are any issues requiring maintenance, please submit a work order to TopDesk. Instructions for submitting work orders are available here. If you need any assistance, please contact your HLECs.

Parking Locations for Unloading

Tank: For unloading only, there is limited parking behind the building. If no spaces are available, pull over along the right hand side of the driveway, far enough that another car can pass. Please only park in the lot and driveway while unloading and repark before unpacking. There are back and side doors which may be more convenient for unloading.

Hark and TWSJ: For unloading only, there is a driveway behind the building, accessible from West College Street. Please pull as much as possible over to the left. Only park while unloading and repark before unpacking. There is a back door up the flight of wooden stairs.

Keep: There is parking along the side and back of the building. If all nearby spots are full, you can pull over by the dumpsters for unloading only. There is a back door on the North side of the building.

Your HLECs will be your first point of contact for any questions or issues that arise! If you’re unable to reach them, you can reach out to other co-op’s HLECs or the All-OSCA Housing Team. All of the contact information is located below.
