Welcome to Dartmouth College!

One of the most important parts of planning your arrival at Dartmouth is timing. The College has official opening and closing dates each term and students are expected to use these dates when making travel arrangements. Here are some important dates students and their families need to know.

This year, opening day for first year students is Tuesday, September 5, 2017. The only students who may occupy rooms before this date are first year students who will be returning from one of the later Dartmouth Outing Club (DOC) Trips (E through J) and pre-season fall athletes who are required to arrive early for practice. 

It is critically important that students not arrive before the scheduled date and time as rooms will not be ready for occupancy. Check-in information is also always included with the student's Room Assignment Notice which is e-mailed to students several weeks prior to the beginning of the term. Students wishing to arrive in the Hanover area before their scheduled opening date/time should arrange for off-campus accommodations.
