Accommodations and Meals

Housing Accommodations:

Winter/Spring Orientation (January): Students attending orientation in January will NOT receive housing accommodations during orientation. Students who have reserved on-campus housing for Spring semester can move into their assigned residence hall room the day before orientation. Students who are commuting or living off campus for Spring semester are expected to commute to the orientation program.

Summer/Fall Orientation (June, July, and early August): Students attending overnight orientation sessions will be housed in James S. White Hall. Due to the short amount of time student's will spend in the Residence Hall during orientation sessions we do not accept roommate requests.

Late August Orientation: Students who are attending non-overnight orientation sessions in the month of August will NOT receive housing accommodations. Students who have reserved on-campus housing for the Fall semester can move into their assigned residence hall room the day before the final orientation session. Students who are commuting or living off campus for the Fall semester, or students who are living on-campus but are not attending the final orientation session, are expected to commute to the orientation program.

Due to security measures parents, family members, and friends are not permitted into the Residence Halls during orientation sessions. Please visit the Lodging page for hotel information.
