Welcome Class of 2022

College Orientation: September 22 - 29, 2018

On behalf of the College, we would like to welcome you and your family to the University of Chicago. At UChicago, Orientation, commonly referred to as O-Week, is a long-standing tradition. Over the course of this eight-day program, students will get better acquainted with all that the College has to offer while making new friends and settling into their new community. Special programs for parents and families, exciting events, and trips throughout the city make O-Week a transformative experience for everyone, and we couldn't be happier to share this tradition with you.

This website is designed as a go-to source of information for undergraduates entering the College. Check back often for announcements and updates that will be posted throughout the summer. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us. For information regarding orientation for entering graduate or professional school students, please visit the UChicago GRAD website.
