Whether you chose to find a place to live in during the summer or you wait until you arrive for the fall semester, moving to a new place has to be made with good planning and careful choice. You'll need to have all your utilities in place in your residence before the day you anticipate to move. Before you move in, check your place and see whether your shower is functioning as well as any other services you have requested. If one of the companies you've contracted hasn't provided the service yet, contact them again to make sure everything is working and functional before you move in.
You may be required to pay an activation fee, installation fee, or deposit for many of the utilities listed.
