We welcome thousands of first-year students as they travel to Chapel Hill every fall for the start of a new academic year. Moving to Chapel Hill during your first year can be has hectic as it is exciting. To assist in this process, Carolina Housing has created the Haulin’ Heels program. Volunteers sign up for shifts working at one of our first-year residence hall communities while helping first years and their families move in, and they get the benefit of moving in early and meeting lots of wonderful new friends.
The signup period begins just before finals and lasts through August 6. Volunteers can sign up for at least one shift working at one of our first-year residence hall communities while helping first years and their families move in. Volunteers are able to select the shifts they are willing to work and are encouraged to participate in as many shifts as they would like.
Why Should I Participate?
- Volunteer while connecting with other Carolina students and their families
- Develop leadership and interpersonal skills

- Get a free t-shirt!
- Move in early (Wednesday, August 14 at 9am)
