For Your University of Minnesota New Student Orientation
Plan for your arrival at Orientation
For directions and parking information, go to www.ofyp.umn.edu/directions.
Due to multiple construction projects on and around campus, please follow the directions listed on the above Website. DO NOT USE GPS DIRECTIONS, as these routes will be incorrect. Please allow an extra 20 minutes for getting to campus, as traffic congestion around campus will be significant.
After parking in the East River Road Garage, gather your luggage and take the elevator to Level 1/Plaza Level. Then follow the signs to Coffman Union’s ground floor for Orientation Check-In.
There is no required overnight for the August orientation programs. If you need accommodations for the night between your Day 1 and Day 2 of Orientation, you can reserve a room on-campus at the cost of $22 per night by registering here.
Check-In begins at 8:15 a.m.
Although you can check-in anytime between 8:15-10:00 a.m., make sure you plan ahead if you want to attend any of the morning sessions. For a list of these sessions as well as a complete overview of your Orientation schedule, click here.
