August Orientation Fees

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

Orientation Housing Charges

First-year students who attend August orientation and who are living on campus will be charged one night of early arrival housing. Because first-year students attending August orientation will move into their residence hall rooms one night before first-year student housing opens, they will be charged an early arrival housing fee. The Office of Orientation and Transition Programs will submit a housing request at the group rate ($30) for your stay on August 23. Should you choose to move to campus earlier than August 23, you may arrange for an earlier arrival through the Housing Options, Meals, and Events (HOME) office at the individual pre-semester housing rate ($36.25/night). The HOME office can be reached by calling (513) 529-5000.

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. 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. On-campus dining options will be available in the Armstrong Student Center, where both cash and credit/debit cards are accepted.

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