“We are so excited to have our students back on campus! It’s always great to have that beginning of the semester energy return to campus,” Director of Residential Life Ryan McDonnell said. “It will be a year full of new opportunities to make lifelong memories and to continue to live like a Lion.”
To help ease the stress students and families may feel during move in, Lindenwood faculty and staff will be around campus to greet and welcome students, give directions, answer question, and assist students moving in by helping to carry their belongings into residence halls.
Before returning to campus, both first-year and returning students must ensure they have paid any outstanding bills, registered their vehicles, and completed the immunization requirements prior to checking into their residence.
All outstanding student bills should be paid in full, or a payment plan must be in place. Visit the Lindenwood Bursar’s Office for a checklist of bills that must be paid. For assistance or questions regarding student accounts, payments plans, or financial aid contact Student Financial Services.
All vehicles driven on campus must be registered. Students planning to bring a vehicle to school must register their vehicle through the StarRez portal. Once the form is completed, parking permits for students living on campus will be given to students by their residence coordinator. For students who do not live on campus, parking passes will be mailed to their address.
First time domestic and international students, and returning students who were not enrolled in the previous term, must complete the immunization requirement. Unless medical or religious exemptions pertain, students must satisfy the immunization requirement completely. Students who fail to provide the required immunization documents may have academic hold placed their account.

The IDs allow students to open doors to certain buildings, make meal payments, print, access the Fitness and Recreation Center, and check out books at the Library and Academic Resources Center. To access the student ID, install the Transact eAccounts app.
