Register for August Relocation Orientation

Please note: if you register after Monday, August 14 at 3:30pm, we likely won't have a printed nametag for you at the program.  You should still complete the form and plan to attend your selected session; we'll just make a handwritten nametag for you when you arrive.  

At relocation orientation, you will:

  • Meet other new relocation students, as well as current student leaders
  • Take a campus tour, and identify the buildings where your classes will be held
  • Discover campus resources for academic and co-curricular success
  • Learn about resources that will help you navigate and do business on campus, such as parking and bill payment
  • Talk with Oxford staff about any questions you have

Childcare will not be provided, but students who have children are welcome to bring them along; each student may bring up to two family members or guests. If you would like to eat before or after the program, the Armstrong Student Center, with several dining options, is next door to Kreger Hall, where much of relocation orientation will be held.

There is no fee for relocation orientation, though you should bring money if you wish to eat on campus (dining locations at the Armstrong Student Center accept cash or credit). If you have additional questions please contact the Office of Orientation and Transition Programs at 513-529-9771 or email orientation@miamioh.edu.
