It’s official – you have made the decision to be #UConnBound. We knew you were smart.
Now that you’ve paid your enrollment deposit and secured your seat in the incoming class, there are a couple of items we want to bring to your attention. Don’t worry, the hard part is over. We’ll be keeping you updated on important information and deadlines as they approach. Here are just a few things we’ll cover as you begin your transition to campus.
Register to attend Orientation. Orientation is much more than “taking care of business”. Sure, we’ll have you register for classes, learn our fight song, and get you affiliated with all you need to know to have a successful start to your UConn career. You can also count on meeting someone in your orientation group who you will see throughout your four years on campus. Orientation is when our “big campus” starts to not feel so big anymore. You’ll see.
Upload a photo for your UConn ID card. After you register for Orientation, you can upload a recent photo of yourself for your UConn Husky One Card. Students who upload their photo prior to twelve days before their scheduled Orientation session will receive their UConn ID at Orientation. Students who not upload a photo twelve days prior to their orientation session will receive their UConn ID when they move in or when they begin classes.
Register your cell phone for campus alerts. Update your cell phone information via the Student Administration System. Go to the Student Center and scroll down to the Personal Information section. Access the Phone Numbers area and update your cell phone information as needed.
Planning to live on-campus? You’ll have a few friends joining you. UConn has one of the highest percentages of students of students living on campus of any public university in the nation. Take a look at Residential Life’s recommended items to bring and start thinking about how you will be making your new space your own.
Get familiar with the Academic calendar. You’ll want to know the ins and outs of when classes start, what holidays UConn observes (we give you a few days off every now and then!), and when you can make adjustments to your course schedule.
