One of your first obligations as a Suffolk student is to attend Orientation. For students entering in the fall, Orientation takes place in June and August. For the spring, it’s in January.

We’ve designed a program especially for you.  It’s packed with valuable information to help you understand Suffolk’s academic expectations of you and the many services available to you while you’re here.

Space is limited, so be sure to register for your session as soon as possible.  Registration will be available online in November.  Mark the dates below in your calendar!

New Student Orientation Date:

  • Wednesday, January 14 (12pm-5:30pm) - Thursday, January 15 (8am-5:30pm)
  • You must plan to attend both days of the program to finalize course selections and begin classes on January 20th.

This session is not overnight, students and families must either travel to and from sessions each day or arrange for accommodations in an area hotel. 

Students who will be living on campus will be able to move in on January 14th from 9am-12pm.  If you originally deposited as a commuter, but would like to live on campus, please contact Residence Life and Housing to inquire about available accommodations.
