Guest Policy

You are permitted to register up to four parents/guest/supporters to attend your session with you.

Siblings 17 years old and under cannot attend an orientation session without a parent/supporter.

Orientation Roommates

On the reservation form, under the “Overnight Student Residence Hall Requests” section, students can request, or go back and edit, to room with another student attending the same session and inform us of additional overnight pairing information details. If students decide they want to room together within two weeks of their orientation session, they will need to call the orientation office or both arrive to check-in at the same time. Students attending the final session in August will be living in the residence hall and room they were assigned by Residential Living.


Parking restrictions include parking in front of a fire hydrant or a disability parking sign, unless you have a valid permit displayed. Campus signage will direct you to the Duryea Parking Deck. Check-in will start at the Garrett Center and conclude at Williams Hall, a short walk from where you will park.

The program will begin at approximately 1pm on Monday/Thursday with lunch on your own.

The program will conclude on Tuesday/Friday between 4-5pm. Schedules will be made available on the main page closer to the first orientation session.
