Students starting Autumn Quarter 2023: Orientation Registration will open this summer. Stay tuned!
Orientation: Friday–Sunday, September 8–10
Move In: Morning of Friday, September 8
Orientation Welcome Dinner Event: Evening of Friday, September 8

Welcome, new Falcons! Start your Seattle Pacific University journey off right with Orientation — an exciting and informative three-day experience that will connect you to the SPU community and all of the resources we have to offer. You’ll have the opportunity to check out campus, meet your classmates and current students, and learn more about what it means to be a Falcon. 

All of our new students (both first-year and transfers) are required to participate in Orientation. Students’ families are encouraged to participate in the sessions created specifically for them. Administrators and faculty members will share about our academic programs, student services, and ways they can support their student’s transition to SPU. 

International Student Orientation

International students moving into residence halls are allowed an early move in time: the morning of Thursday September 7. In addition to orientation for all incoming SPU students, newly admitted F-1 international students must attend International Student Orientation. For new Fall 2023 admits, International Student Orientation is scheduled for Thursday September 7, 2023, from 1 PM to 6 PM. Please contact the International Student Services Office at iss@spu.edu if you would like more information.
