Welcome, Wildcats, to New Student Orientation

As you begin this exciting new chapter, you probably have questions. Don’t worry. That’s what your virtual orientation is all about. During your virtual orientation, you’ll explore academic offerings, learn about campus resources and departments, review your class schedule and more. Whether you need info on housing or you want to find out how to join an organization, orientation is your one-stop shop for everything you need to know to become a successful Wildcat.

In addition to the virtual sessions, we offer you a chance to participate in live and on-demand chats. Here, you can ask anything and everything about your transition to the University of Arizona. These chats help you learn how to navigate the university and introduce you to the Wildcat community.
