Move-In Information

Updated 8/20/2021 for Fall 2021

Knights care for each other, and we expect all Knights to Armor Up as we approach the start of the fall semester next week.

We expect that all members of our community take personal precautions. We expect all residents to wear a mask indoors, including in shared community spaces inside of residential buildings, in accordance with the CDC’s latest guidance.

If you are not vaccinated, get vaccinated to protect yourself if you are able to do so.

Vaccines are our most effective tool in combatting hospitalization and death due to COVID-19, and wearing masks can help prevent the spread of the virus. The choice not to be vaccinated or wearing a mask can increase your risk and jeopardize the health and well-being of those around you. Vaccines are readily available at no cost at Student Health Services, and students living in UCF Housing should strive to be fully vaccinated or have at least one shot of the vaccine no later than August 22.

UCF Housing has limited isolation rooms that will be made available only to out-of-state and international students who need accommodations. In-state students needing to isolate must return home or isolate off campus at their own cost. This practice is in line with the State University System’s Health Policies for 2021-22, which state that universities are not expected to provide separate on-campus housing for individuals who are directed to quarantine because of exposure to COVID-19.

Thank you for Armoring Up and taking responsibility for your own health and the well-being of those around you.

Students must complete a simple health screening self-check prior to arriving for check-in, using the COVID Self-Checker in the UCF mobile app. More details available on the Move-in Day page.

Review all of the move-in pages in the navigation menu for important information on how to schedule your move-in appointment, what to expect before you arrive, on move-in day, and after move-in, in addition to frequently asked questions.

Appointments are required in order to space out resident arrivals throughout the move-in dates. We want to ensure that the unloading zones, parking, check-in locations, move-in assistance, elevators, and other pieces of the move-in experience are moving effectively and efficiently. We ask that you arrive as close to your scheduled time as possible to help the process run smoothly.

Virtual One-Stop

The offices of Financial Aid, Student Accounts, the Registrar, Undergraduate Admissions, and Residency have gathered to create a one-stop-shop for all your questions during move-in.

The Virtual One-stop will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 21st.

All appointments are now full for the Saturday Student Services Virtual One-Stop. We look forward to serving our students during our normal business hours. For more information, please visit the website of the office from which you require services:
