Move-in day, Thursday, August 22, is when your journey at Hope really begins.

Students carrying items on move-in daySpecific information about when residence halls will be open for move-in will be available soon. Once you arrive, people will direct you to unloading zones. Orientation Assistants wearing orange shirts will be available to help you move in. Please be sure to have all of your belongings labeled with your last name and room number upon arrival.

Orientation welcome packets will be available for pick-up at your designated check-in tent. You will receive an email with instructions on your tent assignment. For new students who are not living in a residence hall, your Orientation welcome packets can be picked up in the Bultman Student Center. 

New Student Orientation headquarters for the weekend are in the Bultman Student Center. If you have questions at any point, Orientation team members will be available there to help.

We couldn’t be more excited to have you finally here on campus with us! If you find yourself feeling confused or overwhelmed at any point throughout the weekend, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your resident assistant or anyone on the Orientation staff. We’re here for you.
