Orientation and Move In

UHSP offers programming both during the summer and the week before classes start to help you get acclimated to being a student and member of the UHSP community. Through fun activities and informational sessions, you’ll meet new friends and get to know campus a little better, so you can feel prepared to take college life head on.

Summer Welcome

Students can choose from multiple Summer Welcome dates throughout the summer. During this day-long event, you’ll meet some of your classmate and learn more about campus life. There will also be opportunities to meet with offices on campus, including the Business Office, Financial Aid and IT, to address any questions you may have leading up to move in day. In the afternoon, you’ll get a taste for life on campus life with activities in the lab, esports arena, Eutopia Student Lounge and more. Round out the day with a faculty meet and greet before heading out on a guided tour of the Central West End neighborhood.

Freshman Move In Day

During Move In Day, the UHSP community comes together to help you get moved and settled into your dorm room. With the extra hands, we expedite the move in process so you don’t have to make multiple trips to and from the garage and get jump right into making yourself at home.

It is a great opportunity to meet faculty and staff, as well as your new neighbors, in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. In the evening, you’ll enjoy a rooftop bonfire where you can enjoy hotdogs and smores while getting to know your new classmates.

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation, a week-long series of events following move in, provides the opportunity to familiarize yourself with campus and its services and complete any lingering enrollment tasks. Students will learn about campus resources and academic expectations while mixing in fun activities throughout the days and evenings.
