Welcome to Marquette University!

New Student, Transfer Student and Family Orientation is an exciting time in the Marquette community. New Student Orientation (first-year students only) is four days of activities, held August 24 – 28, 2016. Transfer Orientation is three days of activities, held August 25 - 28, 2015. 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.

Please check back here in July 2016 for more details on Orientation Programs.

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.

Welcome to Marquette!  We are eager to welcome you and your family to the Marquette community, and offer you events and programs designed to help you support your student in the first year at Marquette.  Parents and other family members of new first-year and transfer students are invited to attend Family Orientation, Aug 24 – 28, 2016 (first-year student families) and Aug 25, 2016 (transfer student families). Though Family Orientation happens at the same time as New Student and Transfer Orientation, students and families are separated for most events. 

Family Orientation concludes by 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug 25, and families are encouraged to leave campus by Thursday afternoon. Students will be occupied in Orientation sessions through Sunday, Aug 28.

There is no registration required for any Family Orientation event, but you are encouraged to stop by check-in for a complete schedule of events and to receive your special gift from the Marquette Parent Program.  

Area hotels tend to book quickly; out of town families are encouraged to reserve a hotel room well in advance. On-campus housing is not available for families during Family Orientation.

Parking during Family Orientation is complimentary. Families may park in either of the visitor parking structures on Wednesday, August 24 and Thursday, August 25, free of charge. Simply identify yourself as a Family Orientation guest to the parking attendant.
