Move-In Day Guide
Arrival, Testing, and Move-in
Your campus arrival time slot was sent to you in a confirmation email. Prior to your arrival to the Colorado College campus, please take care of your off-campus shopping and any other needs. Once you have checked in to your residence hall, you are expected to remain on campus and follow our enhanced social distancing protocols.
On the day of move-in, you must complete your COVID-19 test prior to moving into your residence hall. So, your first stop upon arrival to campus will be the COVID-19 testing site on Worner Quad (902 N Cascade Ave); on-street parking will be available in front of Armstrong Hall (14 E Cache La Poudre*) with additional parking in the Loomis Hall Lot (1106 N Cascade Ave).
Information regarding scheduling your testing appointment were sent via email on the afternoon of Monday, August 10. Please select a testing time that matches your move-in time slot (i.e., if your move-in time is 8 a.m., select a testing time as close to 8 a.m. as is available). More information is also available below:
To make your arrival to campus and testing experience go as quickly as possible, please follow the directions below as well as included in these guides:
- Self-Service Tip Sheet
- Authorization to Disclose Testing Results
- If you are below the age of 18, please have your parent/guardian complete the above Authorization to Disclose PHI and email the signed form back to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step-by-Step Test Scheduling Instructions:
Step 1: Start by setting up your My Health Connection Account. Instructions for the remainder of the process are outlined in the Self-Service Tip Sheet.
Step 2: Once you’ve set up your account, you’ll be able to schedule a time for your test, enter your insurance information, sign forms (including the release that will allow UCHealth to share your test results with the college for contact tracing purposes only), and see your test results when they are available. Select a testing time that matches your move-in time slot (i.e., if your move-in time is 8 a.m., select a testing time as close to 8 a.m. as is available).
Please note that you will not be billed for this testing; UCHealth will bill your insurance and then will bill the college for any remaining balance. Please bring your insurance card with you and arrive on time for your testing appointment. Staff at the halls will be flexible with residence hall check-in based on testing time slot availability.
Step 3: Please also complete the e-check-in before your appointment, as that will help move the process more quickly.
Step 4: Upon your arrival to campus, please first report to the COVID testing location (tent on Worner Quad). On-street parking will be available in front of Armstrong Hall (14 E Cache La Poudre*) with additional parking in the Loomis Hall Lot (1106 N Cascade Ave).
Need help troubleshooting? Some people who had already installed the UCHealth app on their phones have had difficulty getting the Colorado College “employer” information to load into the app. If you have this experience, try closing the app and webpage. Then, in your mobile device, re-click this link. (or copy and paste this link into your browser: https://mychart.uchealth.org/MyChart/empSolutions.html?empPIN=JEJwAqpCHKaaNpggotBVaA%3D%3D&Organization=ColoradoCollege) After you’ve submitted the employer as CC, the next screen should cue you to use the mobile app; click on that and the follow the attached instructions from there. If you continue to have difficulty, please contact Amy.Boxerbaum@uchealth.org.
After you have completed your test, you can proceed to your residence hall for move-in. At your residence hall, staff will be on hand to facilitate the move-in process.
At residence hall check-in, you will receive your room key, your CC ID/Gold Card (be sure to upload your photo in advance as we will not be taking in-person pictures and do not want your gold card printing to be delayed), a safety kit, and a self-care activities kit.
As a reminder, students are only allowed one (1) guest on-campus and in the residence hall during move-in. Please note: food service will not be available on campus to parents/family members, but many restaurant options are available close to campus.
The address of your hall’s check-in and unloading area is:
- South Hall: 130 E Cache La Poudre St, Colorado Springs, CO 80903*
- Mathias Hall: 123 E Uintah St, Colorado Springs, CO 80903+
- Loomis Hall: 1104 N Cascade Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80903^

What to Bring to Campus
In addition to the typical items you should bring with you to campus for your room, we have updated our “what to bring list” with items that will help prevent the spread of COVID-19. These items include: masks, a thermometer, hand sanitizer, alcohol-based wipes, and gloves. A description and explanation of each can be found on the CC Bound FAQ page.
We encourage you to pack lightly so that the move-in process goes quickly and you have the flexibility to change room assignments if necessary. Please bring a mask to wear as masks are required at CC and in public spaces in the city of Colorado Springs. You and your guest will be required to wear a mask during move-in.
Please also be sure that you have submitted your completed immunization/health paperwork within your admission portal prior to coming to campus as we will not be able to process this paperwork in person during NSO.
Parking on Campus
During the extended move-in and NSO, please know that parking permits will not be enforced. We do, however, expect that students and their guests abide by other posted signage (i.e., fire lanes, no parking, accessible parking, service, etc.).
