CINCINNATI - A new crop of Bearcats is moving onto campus starting Wednesday.
The University of Cincinnati is holding its move-in days for new students on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
University officials said they expect the peak crowds from 10 a.m. to noon. as thousands of students bring all their luggage to their new rooms.
Hundreds of faculty, staff and administrators will also be on hand to help students move in, as well as 375 student volunteers from the Resident Education and Development's Hall Opening Team. Those students got to move in a week early to help their fellow students move in.
This year the housing capacity at the campus is 4,676. The school had to lease 142 beds from University Park Apartments and 82 beds at Campus Park Apartments to accommodate demand.
A few lucky students will get to move into the newly renovated Morgens Hall. The “glass house” cost the university $35 million to be enclosed with 2,000 panels of glass, all designed to save energy.
The university recently made some changes to its Stratford Heights complex. Officials said the new TAP house (Transition and Access Program) will help blend students with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities with the rest of the student population to engage them in the college experience.
Among the many updates and changes at the university this year is a move to combat the possibility of bed bugs. Officials said mattresses were replaced in Calhoun and Turner Halls with new, seamless mattresses.
The new mattresses are part of a continuing trend in residence halls to eliminate places for bed bugs to hide.
Students will also get to use a new dresser-desk combination that was designed by UC staff that will create more space in the dorm rooms.
