In order to help residents feel comfortable in their new environment, a mandatory orientation will be held for all new residents shortly after moving in. This orientation is aimed at acclimating students to their new environment, developing a sense of community, reviewing building rules, and learning important safety information. New Resident Orientation will also cover important topics such as laundry, cooking, and tips for living with roommates. 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 New Resident Orientation will be provided to residents in their Housing Acceptance Packet.
