Residence Life staff will communicate move-in details directly with students who have completed a housing contract for the fall 2022 term.
International Student Orientation
While all students are required to participate in our CONNECT orientation program, we recognize that international students have a nuanced and unique transition to college in the U.S. Therefore, international students are asked to participate in an orientation that focuses on items specific to the processes related to being on an F1 visa, as well as campus policy and cultural/social norms to those living in the U.S. and Dubuque.
New student orientation, CONNECT, begins on Thursday, August 18, 2022. International Student Orientation is planned for Friday, August 19 at 4:30 p.m. as part of the CONNECT schedule. Individual or small group sessions may take place prior to this date for early arrival athletes; schedules will be coordinated and communicated with coaches.
