Move-In Day Volunteers


The New Student Orientation Team invites you to participate in one of the most exciting and memorable days of the year: Move-In Day for first-year and transfer students!  Move-In Day is Thursday, September 20, 2018. There are two ways to offer your support on Move-In Day; if you are interested, please register for just one of the volunteer positions below:

Move-In Volunteers -- (note: This position Requires lifting and carrying boxes/bulky items)

As Move-In Volunteers, you will help unload cars, carry suitcases and boxes, meet new students and families, and enjoy the energy that comes with the first day of New Student Orientation. It all begins with a Kickoff Breakfast for volunteers at 7:00 a.m. in Wilbur Dining Hall. Volunteers will sign in, get a welcome team t-shirt, and head out to the residences to work from 7:45 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. (or 12:00 noon if you'd like to stay longer). The time goes by quickly and it's extremely fun!  Register by Monday, September 10.

Move-In Day Volunteer Registration for NSO 2018 will open in the summer.  Check back soon!   Please email Niles Wilson ( with any questions.

*Note: If you are already a part of the 2018 NSO Team – OV, CC, Faces of Community, Beyond Sex Ed, etc. – you do not need to register as a volunteer because you will already be helping with move-in as part of your NSO commitment.

Check-In table Volunteers

If you would like to participate on this special day but you cannot commit to the physical work of a Move-In Volunteer, sign up to be a Check-In Table Volunteer and work with Student Housing staff to distribute room keys and SUID cards to new students at the check-in tables for each residence.  All Check-In Table Volunteers must be full-time Stanford employees.New volunteers are required to attend a 30-minute training before September 19; returning volunteers will receive a "refresher" PowerPoint training guide via email.  For questions, please contact Terry D. Smith, Senior Front Desk Supervisor, at 650-725-8288 or  Register by Tuesday, September 4.
