Incoming Students Arrival Information

Residence Life Welcomes All Our New Broncos

When should I arrive?

Your arrival time was emailed to you. Students must check in at or after their assigned time (prior to 1 p.m.), unless otherwise instructed. 

When you arrive on campus, you will be directed where to drive for pre-screening prior to going to your residence hall.

Move-In Crew volunteers can assist you in carrying belongings during the arrival window. Please put the student’s name, hall and room number on all boxes, suitcases, etc.

There is no provision for early arrivals.

You will have 20 minutes to unload your vehicle near the building before being instructed to park the vehicle.  Someone should remain with the vehicle until it is unloaded so that it can be parked immediately.

When do the residence halls close?

The residence halls close during each break (fall break, Thanksgiving break, mid-winter break, spring break) and at the conclusion of each semester.  All residential students must depart during this time. Services, including meal services, are not available when the college is on break. Students will not have access to their rooms, campus mailboxes, or residence hall facilities during breaks.

All residents must leave the residence halls by the announced closing time. Residents are not allowed to return early. Students should plan ahead and arrange for transportation accordingly. If you cannot leave campus at the scheduled closing time due to weather emergencies or other exceptional circumstances, please contact your Residence Hall Director immediately for permission to stay on campus.

During breaks and in between the fall and spring semesters, students may leave their belongings on campus.  However, we do encourage students to take home with them items of value.  At the end of the spring semester, students must bring all of their belongings home for the summer.

The opening and closing dates and times for break are available on the College Calendar.

What should I bring and what should I not bring?

Residence Life has a what to bring list.  This is a great starting point.  The list includes suggested items to bring and prohibited items.

One hint: Less is better.

Many students never use half of what they bring. If you find you really miss it, you can bring it back with you after a break.   Think about this: if your car is full coming here, how will you ever get it packed in spring when you head home? 

What is my campus mailing address?

All students have a mailbox in the Farrell Student and Community Center; you keep the same mailbox year to year while you remain a SUNY Delhi student.  Mail is addressed to your Farrell Center mailbox, not to your residence hall room. Mailbox numbers and combinations are issued at Welcome Weekend.  If you receive an item that does not fit in your mailbox, you will receive an email asking you to pick up the item at the window (you must show your Student ID).  Hours of operation for the Student Mail Room are posted outside the Mailroom.  To ensure prompt service and to avoid errors, your mail should be addressed as follows:
        Your Name
        649 Bronco Drive, (insert the start of your Delhi email address*)
        Delhi, NY  13753-4450.

*If your email address is, add JF123 after 649 Bronco Drive.

How do I connect my wireless devices?

You can register all of your wireless devices before you arrive!  Instructions are available on our wireless internet page.

What else do I need to know?

Check out our Frequently Asked Questions page.  In addition, prior to the start of the semester, you have attended or will attend a Bronco Ready Day and then Welcome Weekend on the weekend prior to the start of classes to learn more about life in the residence halls and on campus.  During the year, you will have periodic mandatory floor meetings. It is very important that you attend these meetings since you will be given invaluable information that you will be held accountable for, whether or not you attended the meeting.  

Since your Delhi email address is one of the official forms of communication between you and the campus, you should check this on a daily basis for important information from Residence Life and the campus.
