What To Bring

Bradley University Logo

Please see the list below of what all attendees should bring to their Orientation session:

Face Mask and Hand Sanitizer

Masks or face coverings are not required for students and their guests during Orientation. We will have some supplies, including hand sanitizer available should you be interested, otherwise if you would prefer to wear a mask, we encourage you to bring your own.

Overnight Bedding

For each person staying in the residence hall, a thinner blanket, washcloth, towel and a flat sheet are provided. In the past, some have chosen to bring an extra blanket, otherwise, you will need to bring a pillow, a fitted twin sheet, traveling toiletries and shower sandals. While packing, keep in mind that students and family members stay in separate buildings.

Government Issued ID

To obtain your Bradley ID, please bring either a license, passport, or photo ID card.

Health Form

You may submit your completed Health Form at Orientation or when you return to campus for the fall semester. This will include evidence of COVID-19 vaccination and all other required vaccinations or a Bradley approved medical or religious exemption.


Orientation events are casual. You may also want to bring a sweater, light jacket or sweatshirt (many buildings on campus are very cold), umbrella and a rain jacket if needed.

Students may spend time in the Markin Family Student Recreation Center. Please bring gym shoes and recreational clothing. Guests/supporters will also have access to the Markin Center but down/free time is limited. Guests under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.


Schedules will be provided closer to the first session. Please continue to check back.

Final Transcripts, AP and IB Results

Please provide your Admission Counselor in Undergraduate Admission with these documents as soon as they become available to you.
