OSU Move-In: Free shuttle from fairgrounds on Sept. 18-19Posted September 13th, 2012 by raskausn
On September 18 and 19, new students will be moving into rooms on the OSU campus with their families. This will create increased traffic and congestion, as we anticipate an additional 5,000 people on campus each day. Faculty and staff on campus should expect limited parking and potential traffic delays. We appreciate your patience during this busy time.
A free shuttle will be running from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. from the Benton County Fairgrounds on a 15-minute loop on both days. Staff and faculty may park there and ride the shuttle in to campus to help reduce parking congestion on campus. Staff and faculty who elect to do this will receive a 50% off coupon to be used for a meal at any of our UHDS Dining Centers.
If faculty and staff would like to volunteer to help out with opening, signing up is easy: http://oregonstate.edu/uhds/volunteer. The shifts are three hours each, including a short volunteer orientation session. You will receive an OSU t-shirt, water bottle, and a meal card to use at any UHDS dining facility as a thank you for helping make Move-In a success!
Please consider volunteering. We need many hands to help our students transition quickly and smoothly into their residence hall or cooperative house. We appreciate any time you can give to our new students and their families.
For any issues, concerns or questions about our Residence Hall and Co-op House move-in, please contact University Housing and Dining Services staff at 541-737-4771.
