Orientation Schedules

Fall Orientation

Please read the Back to The Bluff webpage to find out about UP's plans for Fall Semester.

Key dates:
Move In Days: August 17-18 (by appointment; details to follow)
Orientation Begins: August 19
Classes Begin: August 24

For the health and safety of our community during this COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be providing programs and activities for parents and family members during Orientation. To ensure physical distancing during the residence hall move-in process, all students will receive assigned move-in dates and times by July 3. Students may bring up to two adult guests to help them move in and assist them with getting comfortable in their residence hall.  Students and their move-in guests should prepare for a streamlined move-in process by having all belongings and supplies ready to move in during their designated appointment time. To support physical distancing efforts during move-in week, limited appointments will be available beginning August 3 for nearby students and families who may wish to drop items off early. Dining plans and building access will be activated on each student’s designated move-in day and time.

Please note that Orientation for parents and families has transitioned online this year. Find more information on the Orientation Webinars page.
