Freshman Orientation Sign-Up for Students Starting Classes in January, 2017

ORIENTATION IS MANDATORY:  All first time degree seeking students attending the University of Connecticut at Storrs are required to attend an Orientation program in order to register for classes.

This program is for new students only.  Parents, friends or siblings CANNOT stay with new students during their Orientation session.  Parents, friends or siblings will have to wait for their student until the Orientation program ends at 5:00 p.m.  Parent Orientation is not offered during the December/January Orientation period.

    • Email Invitations to Orientation will be sent to new students who paid the university enrollment deposit ($300) starting mid-November.  This is for the Storrs campus only.
    • Reservations are accepted on a first-received, first-reserved basis because Orientation sessions can fill up before their reservation deadlines are reached, since we can accommodate only a certain number of students per Orientation session.
    • Spring semester Orientation sessions will occur in late December & mid-January before the start of classes on January 17, 2017.  These are “early” Orientation sessions for new students who can travel to and from Storrs to attend them.
    • Residence Halls open on Sunday, January 15, 2017.  New students cannot move into their residence hall room prior to this time to attend an early Orientation session.  A final Orientation session will be held on Monday, January 16.
