GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Check-in for residents of the University of Florida’s residence halls begins Wednesday and continues through Sunday. Between 7,500 and 7,600 residents are expected.

UF faculty and staff should plan for increased traffic on all campus roads and near all red zone parking lots as well as in staff parking lots near the halls as residents and their families park on a short-term basis to unload their vehicles.

Areas expected to be affected are:

* Orange spaces near the Housing Office;
* Orange and car pool spaces adjacent to Yulee Area along SW 13th Street;
* Orange and car pool spaces adjacent to Murphree Area;
* Orange and car pool spaces east of Tolbert Area;
* Inner Road area north of Broward/Rawlings/Yulee Areas;
* Gated lot west of Murphree Hall;
* Commuter lot on Gale Lemerand Drive that will be used to support a remote parking and shuttle service to east campus residents and families (Aug. 17 only).

This year, all residents have received check-in appointments in an attempt to control the flow of arrivals to campus. However, between 60 and 70 percent of residents are expected to arrive Wednesday.
