August Orientation - Orientation Fees

Nearly all costs for orientation are already included in student tuition & fees. 

Orientation Housing Charges

Transfer students who attend August orientation will be charged three nights of early arrival housing. Because transfer students attending August orientation will move into their residence hall rooms three nights before upperclass student housing opens, they will be charged an early arrival housing fee. The cost of early arrival is $30 per night if moving in on August 23. Should you wish to move in earlier than August 23, please coordinate your stay through the Housing Options, Meals, and Events (HOME) office by calling 513-529-5000. Additional early arrival nights will cost $36.25/night.

Please note: students who register for August orientation and do not check-in and attend the orientation program will still be charged the early arrival housing fee.


Student meal plans begin on Thursday, August 24, 2017. Student meals are not provided during August orientation; you will receive detailed information regarding pre-semester dining options in your confirmation email after you register for August orientation.

If you have questions about orientation fees, please contact the Office of Orientation and Transition Programs by calling 513-529-9771 or emailing
