Universal Banner Image 1

Nearly all costs for orientation are already included in student tuition & fees, with the exception of early arrival housing charges. Students/guests are also responsible for covering the cost of their meals before meal plans begin on Thursday, August 20. 

Orientation Housing Charges

Because first-year students attending August orientation will move into their residence hall rooms two nights 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 ($26-$39, depending on your residence hall room and building type) for your stay beginning on Tuesday, August 18. See instructions on our August orientation Early Arrival page if you need to move into your residence hall before August 18. Please contact the Campus Services Center at 513-529-5000 with any questions.

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 20. Student meals are not included during August orientation, but you can use cash or credit to purchase meals at dining locations in the Armstrong Student Center.

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