When you check-in
When you arrive at your designated check-in location, you will be asked for your Husky Card or another form of photo ID. Once you have checked in, you can proceed to your unload area.
The Husky Card is your key card for access to your building. If you do not receive your card before you move in, you will need to obtain one afterward from the Husky Card Account & ID Center (Husky Card Office), located on the ground floor of Odegaard Undergraduate Library. Please check their current operating hours. In the meantime, you will receive a temporary building access card so you may access your residential community.
You will be given your room and mailbox keys when you arrive to your designated check-in area. The keys are assigned to you uniquely; avoid switching keys with your roommate. Report lost or stolen keys to your regional desk immediately.
Red emergency backpack
New residents are provided with a red emergency backpack when they first check in to their residential community. This comprehensive kit includes water, food rations, and other emergency supplies. The contents will remain viable for several years. Please keep your red emergency backpack for as long as you live with us.
Things to consider
- You are responsible for reading the information sent to your mailbox, posted on your room door, and/or sent by electronic communication to your UW email account by HFS. HFS will send most correspondence to applicants and residents via their UW email accounts. Please note that if you forward your UW email to a different account, it may be filtered, refused or treated as spam. HFS is not responsible for emails not received. To ensure delivery of emails from HFS to your email inbox, add email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to your email address book or list of approved senders
- You are encouraged to insure your personal belongings. Check with your family’s insurance policy to see if your possessions are covered under that policy or if you can get renters insurance added. If not, you may wish to purchase insurance offered by an independent company.
- The Family Education Right and Privacy Act (FERPA) prevents us from releasing your information, including how much you owe on your housing account, to anyone other than yourself without your authorization. You may authorize HFS to release information about your housing account (e.g., to your parents/guardians) by supplying their names on your Student Personal Services page.
- HFS will not release room numbers to any unauthorized person including friends, parents and relatives.
