What to Expect at Move-in: Quick Overview


  • Housing move-in appointment completed online.
  • Have your UCF ID card or plan to pick up your UCF ID card on move-in day at UCF Card Services before arriving at check in.
  • Have the UCF Mobile app downloaded on your phone or mobile device.


Your UCF ID card becomes your keycard. You must have it to check in.

If you do not already have a UCF ID card, you will have to go to the Card Services office before you move-in. See move-in map below for location information.

*Card Services will be open during move-in hours.


  • Verify your move-in appointment time and housing assignment on your myUCF housing portal before you arrive on campus.
  • Review the move-in map and parking directions on our website.
  • Have a Photo ID ready to show at check-in. If you will be picking up your UCF ID on campus, you still need to bring another form of photo ID. A Driver’s license, State ID card, or passport will suffice.
  • To speed up your check-in, you may want to bring a screenshot of your room assignment screen from the housing portal. The image should include your HRL ID and room assignment. You should have this ready to show on your phone or other mobile device. A sample screenshot would look like:

Parking and Check-In

Parking and unloading areas are not near the residence halls and check-in stations. Therefore, we recommend that residents bring their own hand cart or dolly to help transport items from their vehicles. Please note there are no elevators in the Apollo and Lake Claire Communities. Residents on upper floors should plan accordingly.

Parking and traffic patterns across campus will be strictly enforced to ensure continuous flow. Do not park in fire lanes, service vehicle parking, or reserved parking at any time during move-in.

What to do when you arrive

  1. Arrival – Upon arrival, go to the designated unloading zone for your community as noted in the chart below. Staff will be available to assist with unloading and will direct residents from parking areas to check-in stations.* If you are moving into Lake Claire, NorthView, or the Rosen College Apartments, park in the designated lots. There are no unloading zones in these communities.
  2. Information Stations – Information tents will be located near unloading zones. Move-in staff are stationed throughout the communities to provide directions and help with unloading.
  3. Check-In Stations – Residents should immediately go to check-in upon arrival. Wait times can vary. To avoid overcrowding at check-in stations, we encourage residents to check in while families and guests continue to unload their vehicles. Staff will review important information, issue keys, encode ID cards, identify your new building/room and direct you to information stations if unloading assistance is needed.
  4. Unloading – At least one person must remain with vehicles while unloading. Once vehicles are unloaded, they must immediately be moved to designated long-term/overnight parking. Overnight parking is not permitted in unloading zones until move-in weekend is over. Guests or residents with mobility concerns may be issued a pass for extended temporary unloading by staff.
  • Use your mobile device or bring a printed map to find your assigned building.
  • Rolling bins will be available in unloading zones.
    • These items are cleaned between uses, but are used at your own risk.
