Unloading

  • As you wait to enter the unloading zone, housing staff will greet you and give you a blank emergency contact card. While you are waiting for your turn to unload, fill out the emergency contact card. This will speed up your check-in process.

  • Proceed 300 feet and turn Left into the Riverside East and West unloading zone. Staff and volunteers will assist with unloading belongings from the vehicle.
  • We ask that the driver remain with the vehicle while the resident is checking in and unloading.
  • Once the vehicle is unloaded, the driver will need to immediately leave the unloading zone and proceed to the appropriate parking location. Only the resident may check in, parents/guardians will not be permitted to check in on the resident’s behalf. If the resident is also the only available driver, please let our staff know immediately upon your arrival so that arrangements can be made.
