Start the year by being a volunteer!

Nearly 4000 students from out of town will be moving in to Rez in September. Many will be flying in from foreign countries.

We need volunteers for the move-in weekend to help in a few areas. Volunteering with the uoRez team will give you the chance to meet new people all over campus and acquire experience too. We will provide a volunteer T-shirt, and meals after a 4hr shift, to best equip you for your time volunteering with us!
