Families and/or students who are experiencing travel difficulties in arriving on an allotted day or during the assigned time should reach out to the Office of Residence Life at (615) 547-1231 or to schedule a modification to check-in after the scheduled time. If you are a member of an athletic team, the student should contact their coach to make them aware of these same issues.

*Early Arrival* - Students whose travel has them arriving prior to their scheduled check-in date may request to be allowed to move-in no more than three days in advance, provided not on a weekend, and the check-in policy will apply. No check-ins will occur on the weekends for Fall 2017. It is an additional $25 a day to move in early.
We look forward to a great year and hope that you are too! Many exciting changes are coming to Cumberland this fall!
See you soon!
