Sunday, August 29 is move-in day at Plymouth State University. Because Labor Day is later this year, classes are beginning before the holiday weekend. University Police are preparing for the return of approximately 3,800 students and Sgt. Mike Clark notes, “We anticipate a higher traffic volume on Sunday than in the past because Monday is not a holiday.”
New students can begin moving into on campus housing beginning at 8:30 a.m. August 29. In an effort to minimize congestion and keep traffic flowing through the downtown area, students and their families have been directed as follows see map:
• Students moving into White Mountain Student Apartments will be directed south on Main St., then west onto Merrill St.
• Students who will reside in Grafton, Smith, Hall, Mary Lyon or Blair Halls will travel south on Main St. after exiting, and then west on High St.
• Students moving into Pemi and Belknap Halls will follow Rt. 25 west to Highland St., and follow Highland St. east to Langdon St.
University police will be stationed throughout the community to assist drivers. Additionally, members of PSU’s athletic teams and Greek life will be on hand to help students unload vehicles and move in to on-campus housing.
Says University Police Chief John Clark, “We will coordinate the flow of traffic, along with Plymouth Police, to facilitate a smooth and efficient move-in and ensure roadways are accessible to emergency vehicles.”
