As move in continues for the Fall 2021 semester, the Howard University Staff Organization Initiative is seeking assistance from members of the Howard University Community with welcoming our Bison to campus. Volunteers are welcome to dedicate a few hours (4 to 5) as greeters and information guides: 

  • Greeters - Will be at the front of the building and in the lobby of the residence hall(s). This person will greet new students and parents as well as give gentle reminders regarding COVID-19 expectations (proper mask-wearing and crowding). This position will also ensure everyone is following the move-in policy of two (2) helpers per student.


  • Information Station within the Residence Halls – This station will help residents and parents with any questions or concerns. Assist with key/IDs (if needed), directions, local amenities, and help troubleshoot any problems that may arise. 


Volunteers are: 

  • Encouraged to be fully vaccinated (please bring vaccination card)
  • Required to bring their HU ID
  • Required to wear a mask 
  • Encouraged to wear Howard apparel (if possible)
  • Required to observe social distancing protocols 
  • Required to follow all CDC guidelines


All volunteers should report at least 10 minutes before their scheduled time block to allow for check-in, briefing, and to pick up your T-SHIRT. The Fall 2021 move-in schedule, move-in times, and sign-up link can be found below.
