2018 Fall Move-In Volunteer Application


Thank you for your interest in being a Move in Volunteer.  Move-in Day for students and their families is a special time in which GW welcomes in a new group of students to our community as well as returning students!  Having thousands of students move in on the same day can be stressful, but by volunteering to help with move-in, you will be providing a valuable service to your fellow classmates and their families on what can be an otherwise stressful day.  

To recognize your effort and help you be fully prepared to welcome students, you are provided early move-in beginning Tuesday August 21st at 10:00 am. All volunteers are expected to assist for TWO, three and a half hour shifts.  One shift must be on Saturday, August 25th, the second shift can be on either Wednesday, August 22nd or Saturday, August 25th.  Again, in recognition for this effort, you will be given early move-in beginning Tuesday August 21st, so that you can be organized and ready when the students arrive on move-in days.  Volunteers are expected to work at least one shift on August 25th because it is the largest move-in day. Volunteers will be charged the $100 pay by night fee if the two mandatory volunteer shifts are not completed. To be eligible, all applicants must be in good standing with the University and cannot currently be on disciplinary probation. Lastly, ALL applicants must be able to lift at least 30 thirty pounds since, as Move-In Volunteers assist our residents in moving belongings to their rooms. 

We will notify all APPROVED Move-In Volunteers no later than July 25, 2018 in order for you to sign up for your required 2 shifts that will be sent via a link to your email address. 

NOTE: Incoming first-year and transfer students ARE NOT ELIGIBLE to volunteer.
