University of Nevada, Reno

    Welcome New Students!

    All first-year students are required to participate in an orientation program. Orientation prepares you to get involved, get connected, and make the most of services that help you succeed at the University of Nevada, Reno.

    First-year students may choose between Overnight Orientation, our full program that includes an overnight stay in a residence hall, or Single-Day Orientation, a compressed, single-day program. All orientation sessions take place on campus. We encourage you to register your parents or other supporters to attend the simultaneous Family Orientation program.

    During the week before your orientation date, you will receive required pre-orientation and pre-advising materials to complete online.

    During the week after you attend orientation, you will have a virtual, one-on-one meeting with your academic advisor to go over requirements for your major and discuss changes to your class schedule.
