To ensure that Blinn's campus safety guidelines begin with check-in, students must move in at their assigned time, and can bring just one friend or family member to assist them. Both the student and their friend or family member must undergo screening before moving in. Students should not come to campus if they or anyone in their household has experienced COVID-19 symptoms within the previous two weeks. 

Students will receive their ID card and prepaid parking permit from Enrollment Services.
