Move In and Orientation

New Student Registration will take place on August 19. This is mandatory for ALL (First Year and Transfer) incoming students.

During New Student Registration students will confirm that all paperwork is completed and confirm financial clearance.

Once a student is financially clear, they will receive a "Go Pass" which will allow them to move into the residence halls. All students must be financially clear BEFORE they will be allowed to move into University-sponsored housing, begin classes or participate/practice in activities/athletics.

New Student Orientation

Following New Student Registration will be a mandatory New Student Orientation program from August 19 – 20. This is mandatory for ALL (First Year and Transfer) incoming students.

This fun multi-day New Student Orientation will welcome new and transfer students to life at Ottawa University. This is the time of year that the Ottawa University family grows – through the addition of new students, like yourself!

The days will be fun-filled with lots of activities and opportunities to meet fellow students, become familiar with the campus, as well as meet the faculty and staff who will be active in your college experience. We encourage you to get involved, ask questions, make friends, and dive into all that’s available.
