All students in Yeh, NCW allowed to move into fall dorms on schedule after construction uncertainty

In an email to The Daily Princetonian, Deputy University Spokesperson Michael Hotchkiss announced that beginning Sept. 3 “at 8 a.m. all sophomores, juniors, and seniors with [New College West] NCW/Yeh assignments can move into their academic year rooms.”

Previous communications from the University stated that it was possible that more than 25 percent of NCW and Yeh students would have temporary housing assignments in the former First College if construction remained incomplete after the scheduled move-in date of Sept. 3.


The email from Hotchkiss also clarified that first-years will now be able to move in Sept. 3 — but would not gain access to their assignments until 9:30 p.m., “to support their attendance at Orientation events throughout the day.”

The news comes just a day ahead of most students’ return to campus. In the week prior to official move-in, around 20 percent of Yeh and NCW students were living in temporary housing.
