Fall Welcome Week 2024

Welcome Week is filled with important activities and sessions designed for new students living on and off-campus.
Some Welcome Week programming is mandatory, and all of the information you will receive is important. Your first day of Welcome Week depends on your college affiliation; plan to participate in programming starting September 19 or after your move-in date.
We understand that you may not be able to attend some programming (due to religious holidays, family commitments or obligations, health issues, etc.). If you cannot attend a mandatory session, contact orientation@ucsc.edu for support and for additional session options.

Check your email for 2024 Welcome Week information.

Note: Fall 2024 quarter classes begin on September 26.
