Top Questions about Move-in

Roommates and Housing Assignments
Housing/roommate assignments will be emailed to each incoming student's Elizabethtown College email address during the second week of August from the Office of Residence Life. Students often ask what happens if they do not get along with a roommate; it may take some time getting used to living in a residence hall room, but having a roommate is part of the fun of college! If you have any problems with your roommate your Resident Assistant (RA) or the Resident Director (RD) of the building will be there to assist you in the transition to your new home. For more information about housing, please visit the Residence Life website.

Bringing a Car to Campus
First-year students are permitted to bring a car to campus and park in the Brown Lot, which is across the street from Leffler Chapel. There is not a parking fee, but students are required to register their cars with Campus Security. When you arrive on campus, Campus Security will provide a timeline for car registration. Students who fail to register their cars will receive a fine(s) from Campus Security starting at $50. For more information about cars on campus, please visit the FAQs on the Campus Security website.

Your Computer on Campus
You can bring a desktop or laptop processor to Elizabethtown. Many students choose to bring a laptop, so they can use it in the wireless locations available on campus. Information and Technology Services (ITS) supports both Windows-based computers and Macintosh computers on campus. Ninety-five percent of the computers on campus are Windows-based computers, and therefore, 95% of ITS' support goes to these computers. ITS will help individuals with Macintosh computers to the the best of their ability, but their knowledge of the Macintosh operating systems and applications is not as developed as their knowledge of Windows operating systems and applications. Elizabethtown College has computer purchasing arrangements with both Dell and Apple. You may purchase a computer at a small discount (5-8%) from these vendors on the ITS website. For more information about computer requirements and the many other services that are available to students, visit the Information and Technology Services homepage.
