Spring 2021 Move-in Dates

Spring 2021 move-in will be from January 6-10, by appointment only.

  • Residents should not make travel plans until they select a move-in appointment.
  • All spring UCF Housing residents at the main, Rosen, and downtown campuses will be required to complete a mandatory COVID-19 test upon arrival.
  • This will be a rapid test, and a negative test result will be required to encode your keycard for the spring.
  • Students who test positive will have the opportunity to work with staff immediately for isolation arrangements or return home for the appropriate isolation period. Students are strongly encouraged to isolate at home when possible.

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


UCF move-in procedures vary for fall, spring and summer. Campus partners including Parking Services, UCF PD and UCF IT are available to support your move-in process. Other on-campus vendors, like food and beverage vendors, may have limited hours or services. It is important that you plan accordingly.


Statement on Move-in and guests:
All UCF housing residents have agreed to abide by university COVID testing and policies as part of the housing agreement addendum. Students who violate move-in procedures or other COVID-related policies will be subject to removal from housing.
This includes residents who are found to have improperly entered housing facilities and any resident providing access to unauthorized visitors. Residents who have not yet completed the appropriate testing and move-in procedures are not authorized to access housing facilities, even as a visitor. Spring 2021 residents who have completed the appropriate move-in procedures may host one guest, who must be a current resident from their same building, who has also completed the appropriate move-in testing and procedures.
