New Graduate Student Orientation

    2022 New Graduate Student Orientation

    We are excited to have you join the graduate student community at UofL this fall, and look forward to connecting with you. As you begin your graduate education, we want to make sure that you have all the tools you might need to get started. So, we’ve provided you with a short checklist to help you:

    Fall 2022 New Graduate Student Online Orientation Module

    COMPLETE the Fall 2022 New Graduate Student Orientation Module before classes begin. There may be multiple UofL orientations in which you will participate – a program orientation, international student orientation, and the over-arching Graduate School orientation (this one). While there may be some redundancy, most of the orientation sessions will cover separate material. For the Graduate School, we invite you to complete the module that best matches how you are coming to your Graduate education:

    Fall 2022 New Graduate Student Orientation: this is the standard orientation that most of you will complete.

    Fall 2022 New Graduate Student Orientation for ONLINE ONLY graduate students: this is for graduate students who are in an online-only or primarily online program.

    Fall 2022 New Graduate Student Orientation for RECENT UofL UNDERGRADUATES: this is for graduate students who have graduated from UofL within the last 3-4 years.


    Fall 2022 New Graduate Student Resource Fair & Meet and Greet 

    New Graduate Students are invited to attend these great in-person opportunities to learn about UofL resources for graduate students and meet other UofL graduate students! We'll also have giveaways and food!

    Resource Fair: Thursday, August 11, 2022, 3pm-5pm, Outside the Red Barn on the Belknap Campus (rain location inside the Red Barn). 

    New Graduate Student Meet & Greet: Thursday, August 11, 2022, 5pm-6pm inside the Red Barn on the Belknap Campus. Register to attend the Meet & Greet here!

    Parking Information

    Free parking will be available beginning at 2pm in the Floyd St. Garage (across the street from McDonalds, see map here). The parking gates should be up and you can enter and park in any of the “blue” spaces. You can then walk across the pedestrian bridge over the train tracks. The large building directly to your right will be the Student Activities Center. If you walk to the front of the building, turn right, and continue walking in front of the building, you will come to the Red Barn Plaza where the Resource Fair will take place. The Meet & Greet will take place directly after the Resource Fair inside the Red Barn. Accessible parking is also available directly behind the Student Activities Center. 


     We are so looking forward to having you join the UofL Graduate Student Community!
