  • Keys can only be issued to the student residing in that space. To ensure safety, we cannot issue keys to parents, friends, or other family members.
  • Luggage carts will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Carts may be borrowed for 60 minutes with a $10.00 (cash only) deposit. If the carts are kept longer than 60 minutes, the deposit will be donated to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.
  • As you travel into Lubbock, tune in to 100.3 (Mix 100), 104.9 (The Beat), or 96.3 (KLLL Country) for live updates and reminders about move-in weekend.
