Check In

All volunteers will check in at the volunteer tent in the Minor Courtyard. (rain location: Minor ground floor lobby)

Volunteer shifts: TBA

Volunteers will receive name tags, t-shirts, and volunteer assignments at check in.

Members of volunteer groups will sign (or submit previously signed) liability waivers.

Members of volunteer groups will have group pictures taken.

In order to maximize the number of residents who receive move in assistance, we may ask groups of 20 or more to divide their members across multiple locations.


Volunteers are asked to park at the Ford Center or Jackson Avenue Center so that residents can park in the residential lots. Beginning in August, the O.U.T. Bus (bronze line) will run to campus every 5 minutes from 7:00am – 7:15pm from the Jackson Avenue Center.
