Q. What should I bring?
A. Orientation activities will require walking in and between buildings, so please wear comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing. Other than that, just a lot of good questions!
Q. What if I have to cancel?
A. Please contact Orientation and New Student Programs if you have previously registered but are unable to attend.
Q. I am commuting in for the day, where can I park?

Parking is very expensive and can run from $25-40 for one day. Some of these parking garages offer certain discounts and validation, so please check the list for updated information before arriving on campus.

A. For your convenience we have provided a list of area hotels within close proximity to Suffolk. Please contact the hotels directly to make reservations. We also provide on-campus accommodations during orientation in our residence halls.
Q. Where do I check in?
A. Family Orientation check-in will be held at the 150 Tremont Street residence hall, where students will also check-in for their orientation programs.
