We look forward to welcoming new international students to campus this August! 

Fall 2019 International Student Orientation will be hosted Wednesday, August 21 and Thursday, August 22, 2019. Students are encouraged to arrive by Tuesday, August 20 in order to be ready for orientation activities the following day. On-campus residents may move-in on August 20 for no additional charge, or as early as August 18 with additional nightly fees.

If you plan to live on campus and have not already submitted the Orientation Enrollment Form, you must do so to request early move-in access. We can take early arrival requests until August 11Standard move-in for on-campus students is Thursday, August 22.

(If you no longer plan to attend the University of Portland, please fill out the form to cancel your admission - this will stop all UP emails).

More information will be sent by email to confirmed students. Please contact with any questions in the meantime.
