An Exciting First Semester
Welcome to the University of Pittsburgh. New Student Orientation includes a variety of programs and events that will help you become comfortable in your new home and get connected to the University. It's a great opportunity to meet other students, staff, and faculty, and learn about campus resources, services, and Pitt traditions.
What to Expect
Spring New & Transfer Student Orientation is a six-day program that will begin on Thursday January 3 (international Students) and will run until Tuesday, January 8th. Residence Halls open on January 4th and classes begin January 7th. It will include over 100 social and informational programs for both students and parents. We are hoping to become more green this year and will not be distributing paper copies of our orientation schedule in the mail thia summer, but we have posted it HERE on our website in both interactive catalogue, and regular PDF formats.
