Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey
How should I time my move to Monterey?

We suggest that you arrive at least ten days to two weeks before New Student Orientation begins to locate housing and to get settled. If you will not have a car and/or would like to be within walking distance of the campus, you may wish to arrive earlier as the rentals closest to campus are typically gone the quickest! On the other hand, if you come to Monterey too far in advance of when you actually plan to move in, landlords — in almost every instance — will want you to begin paying rent at the time you sign your lease, rather than when you return to actually move in.
