Moving in on June 30

GHA at Marshall University is right around the corner! This email provides everything you need to know about move-in procedures and the date for moving out of the residence hall. If you have any questions, please email me here or call me at the number listed below. 
  • Students with a last name between A and F, arrive at 9 a.m.
  • Students with a last name between G and P, arrive at 10 a.m.
  • Students with a last name between R and Z, arrive at 11 a.m.    
Your dorm is Freshman South, located on the corner of 5th Avenue and 19th Street in Huntington, directly next to our Campus Recreation Center.  A campus map is attached, with red circles around your dorm and the preferred parking lot. A good landmark is the Dunkin’ sign. We’ll be right across the street. 
To arrive:
Turn left off of 5th Avenue onto 19th Street, and drive right up to the dorms. Signs will point the way. Upon arrival, one of our staff — wearing a purple GHA shirt — will assist you with your belongings and guide you to the check-in table, where you will receive your room assignment and roommate’s name. Your parents can then drive west, behind Twin Towers, to the Student Center, where they will come to a light that returns them to 5th Avenue. Parents can park in the lot across from Twin Towers East on 5th Avenue, between 18th and 19th Streets. 
After you move in, a buffet lunch will be provided from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Harless Dining Hall. Upon check-in, you’ll receive lunch tickets for you and for a parent or guest. From this lunch until breakfast on July 20, all meals for students will be covered by Governor’s Honors Academy. 
*Parents* You can leave after you drop off your child or stick around for our Opening Ceremony. Parents who choose to stay will be dismissed during the Opening Ceremony. The Opening Ceremony begins at 2 p.m., in the Joan C. Edwards Playhouse.

To leave:

Check-out will be in the same place, Freshmen South, on Saturday, July 20, starting at 8 a.m. All students must be picked up by 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 20.
