Arriving to Campus

Check-in & Unloading

As you arrive, have your mobile GATORONE ready. You will need it to collect your keys during the check-in process at your area office. We encourage your move-in team to start unloading your vehicle while you check in. Carts will be available to check out with a government-issued ID or you are welcome to bring your own to speed up the process.

Please note, unloading zones are available for a limited time, and are intended for you to unload your vehicles quickly before moving to a long-term parking location. Vehicles in the unloading zones must not be left unattended at any time. Once your items are unloaded our staff will direct you to the nearest elevators or staircase as well as direct you to your parking location. A shuttle will be available from 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. to take you from parking to your hall so you can take your time unpacking and decorating your room.

The On-Campus Experience

Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants (RAs) are undergraduate students who live in the residence halls and are friends, mentors, and resources. They will guide your experience as a Gator. If you have a question, need advice, are wondering how to submit an iService Request, or want to chat with someone who knows the ropes at UF and is excited about helping you achieve your goals, your RA is here for you! Be on the lookout for information regarding your first-floor meeting, and upcoming hall events.

Great Gator Welcome

The Division of Student Life welcomes you to the University of Florida with our annual Great Gator Welcome events! These events happen at the beginning of each semester and are always a blast. Grab your roommate or some new friends from your hall and catch a welcome event happening near you.
