Volunteers needed for residence move-in day!

Submitted by on 2018/08/08 – 8:30 am

The new school year is fast approaching! Every year, over 800 student residents arrive to move in and the residence becomes a busy, bustling hub of excitement for the day.

This year, students are set to move into MacEwan Residence on Sunday, September 2, 2018 and we are looking for volunteers to help make their first day on campus a special one!  

Move-in officially takes place from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., but we are looking for volunteers starting bright and early at 8 a.m.

There are two shifts available to our volunteers:

  1. 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.
  2. 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Of course you’re welcome to join us for the full day!

Volunteer roles include:

  • parking attendants
  • runners/floaters
  • bin sign-out table attendants
  • greeters

Lunch and t-shirts will be provided for all volunteers. Volunteer training takes place at the end of August. This will be an opportunity for us to provide more information on shifts, schedules and the flow of move-in day.

To register as a volunteer, or for more information, click here or email MacEwan Residence’s manager of student housing Katelyn at
