UC students moving back on campus this week

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Students at the University of Cincinnati are moving into their residence halls on Wednesday and Thursday.

Classes begin at UC on Monday, Aug. 27.

On Wednesday, students in Calhoun Hall, Dabney Hall, Turner Hall, Schneider Hall and Stratford Heights Complex will move in. On Thursday, Campus Recreation Center housing, Daniels Hall, Siddall Hall and University Park Apartments students will move in.

UC's housing capacity this fall is 4,200, and coordinators are expecting between 4,000-4,100 students to move into campus housing. UC Housing & Food Services this summer arranged to lease 140 beds at University Park Apartments to provide additional housing.

This fall marks the 12th year of UC's Helping Hands program, represented by around 250 UC staff, administrators and faculty, who will be on hand to greet students, help them unload vehicles, assist with directions, answer questions and offer a cold drink of water.

The move will also include around 300 student volunteers representing Resident Education and Development's Hall Opening Team (HOT). The HOT volunteers moved into the residence halls early so that they could help their peers move in to the residence halls.
