Keep checking our website and our social channels for updates and information on move-in procedures, dates, and times.


Move-In Volunteer Program (MVPs)

The Department of Housing and Residence Life (DHRL) offers a “Move-in Volunteer” program for the Fall move-in period. This program aims to provide assistance to students, families, and guests by helping with unloading and transporting belongings to their assigned Fall accommodations. The Move-In Volunteer program consists of a group of students, community members, and a third-party vendor. The number of volunteers depends on the number of sign-ups each year and the volume of arriving students.

All  individuals affiliated with the University of Central Florida (UCF), including students, faculty, staff, and alumni are eligible to participate as Move-In Volunteers. UCF faculty, staff, and students can conveniently enroll in the course by following this link to the Webcourse. Faculty and staff who intend to volunteer during business hours must obtain prior approval from their supervisors.

All non-UCF volunteers will not have access to the university Webcourse system. However, we have alternative steps for you to follow:

  1. Thoroughly review the MVP Webcourses PDF_NON Affiliated Volunteers. By proceeding with the risk management form and shift selection, volunteers acknowledge that they have read this document, which contains crucial information regarding volunteer safety and expectations.
  2. Complete the UCF Risk and Insurance Management Volunteer Form, titled “UCF HRL Move-In Volunteer Waiver Form” by August 7th at 11:59 pm.
  3. Sign up for shifts by August 7th at 11:59 pm. To access the Volunteer Shift Selection Form, please click here.
