Move-In FAQs

Please refer to our list of questions and answers to help ensure a smooth transition onto campus. If you have additional questions not answered here, please contact your admissions counselor.

When will I receive my move-in time?

Your specific move-in time will be sent to you in mid-August.

Can I arrive EARLIER than my assigned move-in time?

No.  The move-in times are coordinated to ensure maximum efficiency and ease for all students and families arriving on campus.

Can I arrive LATER than my assigned move-in time?

Yes, but all new students must arrive on campus by 12 p.m. on Thursday, August 29, 2019.

How does the move-in process work?

Please arrive on campus at your assigned move-in time.  Drive directly to your residence hall where a CSP Welcome Crew will be waiting to help you unload your vehicle.
*Pre-labeling your items with your name and room number is very helpful!

Once all of your items have been placed in your residence hall, please park your vehicle and proceed to the Welcome Center at Graebner Memorial Chapel to finalize your arrival.

Celebrating Legacy Open House

The CSP Alumni Team invites all Concordia Legacy students and their families to an informal lunch as a part of Welcome Weekend 2019. This open house-style event provides an opportunity for our legacy families to meet one another, share their stories and celebrate their contribution to the rich history of Concordia St. Paul.

Questions regarding the Legacy Open House should be sent to Rhonda Palmersheim, Director of Alumni Relations, at palmersheim@csp.edu.

Legacy students are individuals who have family members that have attended Concordia St. Paul at some time in our history.
