Use Move In Crew

Our Move-In Crew are certified rockstars! If there was a certification for being awesome, they’d have it.

They are a group of hundreds of student, faculty and staff volunteers that work from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Tuesday and Wednesday of new student move in (Aug. 20 and 21 for Fall 2024). You don’t have to sign up to use their services – just show up, and they’ll help you out!

They’re here to:

  • Welcome you
  • Help carry belongings
  • Answer questions
  • Open doors
  • Provide directions

Join Move In Crew

Thank you for considering to be part of the Move-In Crew!

Move-In Crew are student volunteers who welcome incoming students to the residence halls and help move-in belongings on the Tuesday and Wednesday of new student move in (Aug. 20 and 21 for Fall 2024). First-year students are welcome, and highly encouraged, to participate!

Move-In Crew volunteers get:

  • To move-in early for free – as early as Saturday, Aug. 17 through Monday, Aug. 19
  • All volunteers who complete their two shifts and the required Conflict of Interest form will receive a $50 thank you check; crew leads receive an $80 thank you check. This is a volunteer position, not an hourly paid position.
  • Entered to win a $3000 scholarship, $2000 scholarship, or one of three $1000 scholarships
  • You will receive a free volunteer shirt upon check in to your hall at your hall desk (we ask you to wear it during your shifts)
  • A great way to meet people

To be part of Move In Crew, you must:

  • Work a total of two, four-hour shifts. One shift will be on Tuesday, Aug. 20, and the other will be on Wednesday, Aug. 21.
  • If you don’t work your two, 4-hour shifts, you will be charged Early Arrival fees.

We’re also looking for Move In Crew Leads.

Anyone can be a lead, even if it’s your first time! Leads work an 8-hour shift on one day of move in and have the following responsibilities:

  • Check-in and out move in crew members at area check points
  • Monitor the flow of volunteers and directs volunteers where appropriate
  • Makes sure all check-in materials are returned at the end of the day
  • Communicate with DoR staff members

Sign up will end at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, August 11

Here are some answers to common questions we have been receiving: 

  1. Move in crew students do not need to fill out an early arrival request form.
  2. You can move in anytime starting Saturday, Aug. 17, through Monday, Aug. 19. The front desks will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. so it would be best to come during that time frame. 
  3. All volunteers can move in early! After crew members fulfill their shifts (two 4-hour shifts on Tuesday and Wednesday for Crew or one shift for Leads), the Department of Residence will notify the billing office to remove the early move in charge from your U-Bill.
