New Residential Student Orientation

Your Orientation Program: August 22-25, 2019

New residential students will attend the Arrival Orientation Program scheduled for Thursday, August 22 through Sunday, August 25, 2019. Note that this program coincides with the move-in to campus residence halls.

Orientation will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • connect with faculty and students in your field of study
  • learn more about the MU community and its expectations for you as a citizen
  • sample meals in the University dining hall
  • obtain your Marauder OneCard (student ID), purchase textbooks, and take care of any last minute business
  • participate in some Millersville University traditions

Fall Orientation Information

An email with details about your orientation program is sent to your Millersville University email address at the beginning of August. You then receive an invitation to download the GUIDEBOOK app, which provides you with access to the complete orientation schedule.

Your O-Group

You will be contacted during summer by a current MU student serving as your Orientation Leader (OL). This student will be a great contact for questions and concerns prior to your arrival in August. In addition, you'll be introduced to other students who will be in the same orientation group with you. You'll have an opportunity to make some connections that will make the transition to Millersville that much easier in the fall. The messages will be sent through your Millersville email account, so be sure to check it frequently.

Orientation Fee

New residential students are required to attend orientation much in the same way that students are required to attend classes. A fee of $335 is included in your semester bill to cover the expenses associated with the program (semesterly housing and meal plans do not start until Saturday). Our commitment to campus service providers and material costs prevents the issuing of refunds should you be unable to attend the program.
