To ensure a safe and efficient move-in experience, new students will be assigned a move-in date and time during one of the following days:
Friday, August 23, 8am-5pm

We are planning many programs and events to welcome you to campus and help you to get to know Cornell. We'll share some highlights in mid-June.

Our official Cornell Orientation app will help you organize your orientation schedule, make your way around campus, and connect with other students. Download the app in early August before you arrive on campus. Students have the option to pick up a printed copy of the Cornell Orientation Guide when they arrive on campus.
Families of New Students
Parents and family members are important partners in their student's college experience. We will offer a short Family Orientation program to welcome families to Cornell and to introduce them to opportunities and resources on campus. Additional details and dates will be available in mid-June.
