New International Student Orientation

We are excited to welcome you to campus!

Orientation is a great way to adapt to campus life before the semester begins. During the week, you will meet other KU students, have a tour of campus, get your student ID, move into your residence hall, and receive your class schedule. Important sessions are scheduled throughout the orientation to share information about university rules and policies, student visa rules, registration and billing, information technology, student services, and campus activities, and health and wellness services, just to name a few. A shopping trip is also scheduled to ensure that you will be able to purchase the necessary household items that you are unable to bring from home.
