Graduate Student Orientation

Graduate orientation is hosted at the beginning of each term for new graduate students. The program provides students with an overview of the services and resources available to them at the University of New Haven, a demonstration of how to navigate the school's online systems, information on where to obtain your University of New Haven Campus Card ID and parking permit and, most importantly, the opportunity to meet other students new to the program.

Graduate Students - all colleges and schools.

Time Event
12:00 – 4:00 p.m. Virtual Resource and Engagement Fair

Graduate students will have the opportunity to set up virtual appointments with staff members from our various student service offices on campus to have any specific questions they have answered.

Current students from some of our Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) will be available so our new graduate students can learn how they can get involved in our diverse student organizations and about the many student leadership positions that may be available.

Students will need to download the Career Fair Plus App on their mobile device (iOS / Android) to gain access to schedule individual appointments and get access to some of our drop in rooms on the day of the fair.
Scheduling for virtual appointments will open on Thursday, August 13.
