Play a part in Move-in!

The Move-in Weekend is a gigantic event. Play a part in it by helping our more than 4,000 students move in their residence! 

We need your energy and generosity to help guide those students into their new home. 

Volunteering with the uoRez team will give you the chance to meet new people from all over the world and acquire experience too. 

We provide a volunteer T-shirt, and meals after a 4 hour shift.
