New Graduate Student Orientation

    2023-2024 New Graduate Student Orientations

    We are excited to have you join the graduate student community at UofL 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 2023 New Graduate Student Online Orientation Module

    COMPLETE the Fall 2023 New Graduate Student Orientation Module before August 21, 2023.. 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. Newly admitted graduate students will be contacted via the email addresses they shared, we will update this website and the link and additional information, and graduate program directors will be sent the information as well.

    The Fall 2023 New Graduate Student Online Orientation Module will be available in early June. 



    Fall 2023 New Graduate Student Resource Fair & Meet and Greet 

    New Graduate Students are invited to attend the New Graduate Student Resource Fair and Meet & Greet

    Thursday, August 10, 3-5pm in the Student Activities Center (SAC) W116&117 on the Belknap Campus. Campus partners interested in participating in the Resource Fair can reserve a table here. 


    Parking Information

    Free parking is available n 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!
