January 6: All Students
Day Of Move In:
Student must be present to move-in.
Family members may not check-in for their student
You will be asked to unload your vehicle and then move it to a permanent parking lot. We have carts and staff to help, but it is always a good idea to bring more help and your own cart/dolly if you have one.
Most of our halls have elevators (except for Murphree Hall, Fletcher Hall, Sledd Hall, Thomas Hall, Buckman Hall and the Keys Complex).
Where elevators are available, students are allowed one trip up for their belongings. Only staff operators are allowed to ride in freight elevators.
Unloading Parking (5-10 Min)
Many students move into the halls at the same time. Please help us support you in getting moved in efficiently.
Someone must stay with your vehicle at all times or you may be ticketed or towed.
• Short Term Unloading locations: Red Lot, Housing service drive, or on the side of a roadway. Do not block traffic.
• Restricted Areas (May be ticketed or towed): Brown lots, reserved spaces, disabled parking spaces, car pool spaces, no parking zones, fire lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes, or on the grass. No unauthorized parking from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. M-F in Orange, Blue, or Gated Lots.
Parking After Unloading
Please immediately move your vehicle after unloading.
Student Parking Lots: Red 1, All Red, Green, or “Any Decal” lot. Decal restrictions are lifted for a very short time in these lots. Visitors with disabled parking placards may use disabled parking spaces. Students with disabled parking placards may use disabled parking spaces during check-in and then must purchase UF disabled student decals.
