Welcome new students!

On behalf of the College of the University of Chicago, we would like to welcome you and your family to the University community. Throughout the nine-day Orientation program, our staff and over 220 student volunteers, (collectively referred to as O-Aides), including Student Directors, Orientation Leaders, House O-Aides, Registration O-Aides and International O-Aides will be on hand to answer your questions.

Please use this Orientation website to find answers to all of your questions as you prepare to matriculate next fall. We will regularly post announcements, updates, and important messages here for your convenience.

Orientation is coordinated by the College Programming Office (CPO), located in Harper 152, at 1116 East 59th Street. If we can help in any way during Orientation, as well as during the academic year, please stop by, call us at 773.702.8616, or e-mail us at college-programming@uchicago.edu.
