For Freshmen

We are very excited for your arrival this Fall! Below is information pertaining to the formal check-in and move-in process. We request you review this information to make your arrival a smooth transition.

The Fall Freshmen Orientation program is considered an academic requirement for new students as this program initiates your status as a Widener student. Because this program is so vital to your success, attendance is required and will be taken.

Check-in for ALL Freshman students is in the University Center (UCTR) at the desk inside the main doors off 14th Street.

Note: If you are a transfer student, please visit the Transfer Student Check-In page. Freshman commuter and off campus students should not attend Resident Check-In; please see New Student Commuter and Off Campus residing Check-In information below.
