First Year Students

Welcome to the Corsair family! We are excited to have you on campus for the upcoming academic year!

For new students, the first step is to pay a $200 nonrefundable prepayment to secure a place in Housing. This payment is in addition to the student's $200 matriculation deposit. This can be paid through Admissions or through the University Enrollment Center.

Once that is done, students will need to activate a UMass-Dartmouth email account. This will be Housing's primary method of communication with students not only through the summer, but through the student's career at UMass-Dartmouth. Instuctions on how to set up a UMass-Dartmouth email account can be found here.

Q. The site says I don't have an assignment and I think I should. What should I do?

A. Please contact housing@umassd.edu with your name, ID number, and what kind of student you are - first-year, transfer, returning, grad/law. We will figure out why you don't have an assignment and go from there.

Q. I am unhappy with my room/room type/roommate. What should I do?

A. Please contact housing@umassd.edu from your UMassD email account. Make sure to include your name, ID number, and what your concern is. Please note that options for room changes are limited by space available. The official room change list starts on the first day of classes. Please see your Resident Director to be placed on that room change list.

Q. When can I move in?

A.  First-year student move-in is scheduled for Sunday, August 31. Upperclass student move-in is scheduled for Tuesday, September 2. More detailed information about the move-in process will be provided in August, both on the website and with a letter coming via USPS.

 

Don't have an assignment yet? For the upcoming academic year, we will be using an online contract signing system. A link to enter the system is below, but please note - students will not be able to access the system until they receive their mailing, as there is quite of bit of "behind the scenes" work to be done before students can log in. If a student has received a mailing but still cannot access the system, please contact housing at housing@umassd.edu. In addition, students must use Mozilla Firefox to access the system.

This is the First-Year Student Contract Signing Guide.

This is the Transfer, Grad/Law, and Navitas Contract Signing Guide.

This is the link to the contract signing website. Please note you will need Mozilla Firefox to access the site. Please also note you will not be able to access the site until three business days after your $200 prepayment is in.
