Welcome to Marquette University!

New Student Orientation and Transfer Student Orientation is an exciting time in the Marquette community. New Student Orientation and Transfer Orientation is three days of activities, held August 24-26, 2017. All Orientation sessions are designed to introduce all new students (first-year and transfer) to the academic excellence, vibrant campus life, and community involvement that comprise the Marquette tradition. Students living on campus will move into their residence hall rooms on the same day as Orientation begins.

All new first-year students and transfer students are required to check-in for Orientation on Thursday, August 24, 2017 (also first-year student and transfer student move-in day for the Residence Halls) between 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial Union (3rd Floor).

Families who wish to attend family programming events are encouraged to visit the Families tab at the top of this page.

Orientation events are designed to help students be successful at Marquette. For this reason, there are several events throughout the week that first-year and transfer students are required to attend, and a variety of events that are optional.
