Do I go to the housing office first, and if so, where is it?
Fellow 0L. I think you should've gotten an initial confirmation email, and a reminder message. Here's what was in the email reminder I got a few days before my move-in:
REVIEW YOUR APPOINTMENT
Please review your appointment to ensure the date/ time is correct.
• [My appointment time last week]
If you need to make changes to your appointment, please log into the HOUSING PORTAL to request the change.
WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR APPOINTMENT
To sign your rental agreement, please go to the UAH office located at 401 West 119th Street, near Morningside Drive on the day of your appointment.
You MUST have the following with you:
• Two (2) passport-size photographs of you and your partner/family members (if applicable)
• Your Social Security Number or Passport with Student Visa
• Documentation of “Couples Status” (if applicable)
• Documentation of “Family Status” (if applicable)
After you have signed your agreement, you may move into your unit. Please remember, large furniture may only be moved in during business hours (Monday – Friday, 9:00AM - 4:00PM).
ETA: Also, not sure if it'll work out for you the way it did for me, but I actually got there half an hour before my appointment, and I knocked on the door of Lenfest to see if I could start unloading my car -- they not only let me in, but one of the staff actually opened up my apartment and helped move stuff in, which was awesome. No guarantees they'll do it again, but worth a try. Easily best interaction I've had with any Columbia staff so far, haha.
