One-Day Orientation Program & Walking Tour Opportunity

If you are an undergraduate degree-seeking student who is switching from a regional campus to Storrs for the Spring semester we have two optional Orientation opportunities for you to get to know the Storrs campus.

One-Day Orientation Program: One Orientation opportunity consists of a one-day Orientation program where you will meet with an academic advisor who will will review your spring class schedule, attend sessions of interest that will familiarize you with support services and departments at Storrs, and go on a campus bus tour. This Orientation program will occur on Friday, January 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and is for students only.  Family members and friends CANNOT accompany Campus Change students to this program.

NOTE: Certain Schools/Programs may require attendance.  If you are required to attend, you will receive additional information via email from your School/Program.

One-Day Orientation Schedule – January 13, 2017

Campus Walking Tour: The second Orientation opportunity consists of a campus walking tour that will occur on the Monday (January 16, 2017) before classes begin for the Spring semester from 2:30 – 4:00 p.m.Students can register for one or both of these optional Orientation opportunities. It is recommended that they bring their spring class schedule so during the one-day program or the walking tour students can learn the locations of their classes. In addition, Orientation leader(s) will be available to escort students through the programs and answer any questions or concerns they have about Storrs.

Residence Halls Open on Sunday, January 15th, 2017. Campus Change students CANNOT move in prior to this date.

Cost to Attend – The only thing you pay for is parking.

Students should park in their designated areas on campus to avoid getting a parking ticket. If a student has not been issued a Storrs parking permit before the January Orientation opportunities he/she will need to pay to park in either the North or South Parking Garage. The charge for parking during the one-day program is approximately $10.00.  The parking charge during the 90 minute campus walking tour on January 16 will be approximately $6 (covers 2-3 hours) payable when you exit the garage. There are no other charges associated with either the One-Day program on January 13  or the walking tour on January 16.
