Frequently Asked Questions: Moving in as an International Student for Orientation 

When do international students move into their on campus housing?

Move-in for international students participating in international orientation is scheduled for Friday, August 25th. Our team of professional and student staff will be hosting a welcome desk for all new arriving international students to get their keys, get settled, and learn more about the program! 

We know that with international flights, sometimes it is difficult to arrive on a specific day. Therefore, we will also have a check in desk available on Saturday, August 26th and a flexible first day of our program (so that you will not miss anything crucial if you arrive on Saturday!). 

What if I want to arrive earlier than August 25th, 2023?

When fall housing assignments are confirmed, students will have access to a form to request an earlier arrival date than the one provided for IMP. Please contact [email protected] with any questions about the early arrival process! 

I am an international student athlete - when should I arrive?

For international student athletes, you may be asked to arrive early for pre-season training. In some instances, those practices and/or games may overlap with international orientation sessions.  Should that occur, please consult with your coach and contact [email protected] if you are concerned about missing orientation sessions! 

What if I cannot attend international orientation?

International Orientation is required for all students who are in F-1 or J-1 status, and is highly encouraged for all students who identify with the international experience! International Orientation is also the beginning of our year-long International Mentoring Program. However, we know that due to many factors (such as immigration concerns, travel related delays, or personal health concerns). If you are unable to attend for such reasons, please contact [email protected]
