First, we need to cover a few main questions to check your eligibility to volunteer:
(Keep in mind, volunteer requirements, scheduling, and benefits are very different. Read more here. We only allow you to apply for one or the other as the options are very different, but we will give you the option to be considered for the other types of volunteer later in the application, if you wish.)

Lodging in the Park City area during the Festival can be expensive and difficult to secure. Some Full-time volunteers are eligible for Festival provided lodging but it is not guaranteed. When selecting Full-Time volunteers for Festival provided lodging, we give preference to volunteers who have been with the Festival for a number of years. (Keep in mind Festival lodging is not glamorous - often it is a sofa sleeper in a common room.)
We do not provide any lodging for Half Fest or Sign Up volunteers.
All new volunteers that apply as a full time volunteer are not typically eligible for lodging. Exceptions do happen (although extremely rare) and are due to last minute cancellations and/or specialized volunteer roles that they have the necessary skills for.
Please note, volunteers are not allowed to stay with friends in Festival-provided lodging unless they are assigned to that lodging by the Festival.
