Accommodations and Food

August Orientation Housing

Students who will live on campus should move into their residence hall rooms on Wednesday, August 22, between 8:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.  August orientation check-in will take place beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the Armstrong Student Center. 

Early Arrival Housing Charges

First-year students who live on campus will move into their residence hall on Wednesday, August 22, which is one night before your housing contract begins - so you will be charged for one night of early arrival housing (cost TBD) for that night. As long as you are registered for August orientation, we will take care of arranging the one day of early move-in for you. Students may request early arrival housing through their MyCard portal. Please contact the Housing Options, Meals, and Events (HOME) Office at 513-529-5000 with any questions.

Student Meal Plans

Student meal plans begin on Thursday, August 23. Student meals are not provided during August orientation, although food will be available for purchase with cash or credit/debit card at the Armstrong Student Center.
