Global Crossroads Orientation (Tuesday, August 20–Thursday, August 22)

Global Crossroads residents get to move in two days earlier than the general first-year student Move-In. Orientation helps students transition to the University, and it is a time when new students get to know each other, meet their peer mentors, and learn about GC and the campus. International students can move in to Global Crossroads starting Sunday, August 18 at no additional cost.


There is no additional cost to participate in Orientation, but students are required to sign up. If you do not sign up for Orientation, but you move in early, you will be charged the daily rate for moving in early.
