Housing Orientation

In order to help students feel more comfortable in their new environment, a mandatory orientation will be held for all new residents shortly after moving in. This orientation is aimed at developing a sense of community, reviewing building rules, and learning important safety information. Important topics such as laundry, cooking, and tips for living with roommates will also be covered. This fun event is also a great opportunity to meet other residents and to get to know the staff of Community Assistants!

Detailed information about the Housing Orientation will be provided to residents in their housing acceptance packet.
