What to Expect at Move-in: Quick Overview

YOU MUST HAVE READY:

  • Housing move-in appointment completed online
  • EITHER have approved proof of vaccination from UCF Student Health Services
  • OR COVID-19 test registration completed online
    • Have a printed copy of your pre-registration confirmation email with your personal QR code for testing check-in.
  • Have your UCF ID card (current students) or plan to pickup your UCF ID card on move-in day (new UCF students).
  • Have the UCF Mobile app downloaded on your phone or mobile device.
  • Know your personal isolation plan

IMPORTANT:

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

If you successfully pre-submitted your ID card information, your new UCF ID will be ready at check-in in the Neptune Multipurpose Room.

If you do not already have a UCF ID card, and have not pre-submitted your UCF ID information to Card Services, 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 June 25-27.

Before leaving home:

  • Review our packing list and make sure to have ID before you leave home!
    • Be sure to have belongings packed for possible isolation if you are testing at move-in.
  • Verify your move-in appointment time and housing assignment on your myUCF housing portal before you arrive on campus.
  • If you are testing: Print a copy of your pre-registration confirmation email with your personal QR code for testing check-in.
  • Make sure to download the UCF Mobile app if you have not already done so.
    • Open the app and complete the daily symptom self-checker
  • Review driving 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 at check-in, 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:

Upon arrival on campus:

  • Students and their helpers are encouraged to wear face coverings throughout the move-in process. UCF encourages rather than requires our campus community to wear face coverings indoors and to follow CDC guidelines on our campuses and everywhere you go.
  • Students with proof of vaccination that has been approved by Student Health Services report directly to Check-in.

If you need to take a COVID Test: June 25th and 26th

 

  • When you arrive on campus, proceed directly to Garage D and park for COVID-19 testing.
    • If you are coming to campus in more than one vehicle, only the vehicle the resident is in needs to proceed to COVID-19 testing prior to check-in. Additional vehicles should go to the adjacent parking area in lot D-2 and wait there for your student to finish testing before proceeding to their assigned community.
    • Vehicles over 7’ clearance or pulling a trailer- you will be directed to oversize parking in the adjacent D-2 parking lot.
    • Students without a vehicle who need to take a COVID test should be dropped off in lot D-2.
  • Only the student should exit Garage D and follow the posted signage to the Addition Financial Arena for their scheduled COVID-19 test. Guests should wait inside the vehicle. Bring your printed QR code for testing.
  • Follow signs to the testing entry queue. UCF residents will undergo a rapid COVID-19 test administered by COVID Testing LLC. There will be no out of pocket costs to students for this rapid test.
  • Students should immediately return to their vehicle to await test results. Students without vehicles may wait in the courtyard area.
  • Test results will be sent electronically to the student shortly after testing.
  • While waiting for test results, complete the daily COVID Self Checker in the UCF Mobile app if you have not already done so.

After receiving your test results:

Students who receive a negative test result

  • Return to your vehicle and go to your preferred unloading zone for the Nike, Neptune and Hercules communities. Guests and helpers may begin unloading while the student reports to centralized check-in location in the Neptune Multipurpose Room in building 158
  • Housing check-in staff will need to view your device to verify test results and self-checker status and check you in.
  • This is where residents will encode their UCFID card, receive their room key and welcome bag.

Students who receive a positive test result

  • Guests should continue to wait inside the vehicle. Your test result email will include instructions for the student to meet with a contact tracer.
  • All students who receive a positive rapid test result will be required to isolate immediately.
    • DO NOT report to your assigned housing community. 
    • Housing staff will be located at the arena to assist with isolation procedures. Only the student should report to the arena.
    • It is highly encouraged that students make prior arrangements to isolate off campus if possible.
    • Students who are unable to isolate off campus may work with housing staff to arrange an isolation space on campus.
    • Neither residents nor their guests may enter their summer room assignment and may not place any belongings in their room assignment until they meet the criteria to discontinue isolation and are cleared by Student Health Services to check in to their summer room assignment.

Have a personal isolation plan in place before you arrive:

Know where you plan to isolate off campus and make a plan for where you will place belongings. It is strongly suggested that students isolate off campus if possible.

If you must isolate on campus, have enough belongings packed separately to take into immediate isolation in a temporary space. Be sure to have basic items for approximately 10 days, including:

  • medications
  • clothing
  • toiletries
  • electronic devices and chargers
  • bedding, pillow and a towel
  • minimal basic food preparation and cleaning supplies

Make a plan for where you will place or send non-essential belongings until you can check into your summer room assignment
