The schedule for families during the 2021 New Student Orientation will be available in early August. Our hope is to provide optional family programming on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 and allow families to plan to depart campus following dinner with their student.

Unfortunately, at this time we are uncertain about the format for the 2021 New Student Convocation, please check back later this summer for updates.

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 their first year at Marquette.

Now that Orientation 2020 has concluded, review some additional resources to support your student's transition:

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 New Student Orientation.

Parking during family programming is complimentary. Families may park free of charge in either of the visitor parking structures on Sunday, August 23 through Tuesday, August 25.
