We are excited that you have chosen to become a part of our dynamic community, and look forward to working with you during New Student Orientation.
New Student Orientation will be held for all new students, first-time and transfers, Thursday, August 25th through Friday, August 26th. Please know that transfer students do not need to attend the first day of orientation; only Friday, August 26th. First-time students must attend both days of orientation. This event is a required program that reviews all the information you need to make a seamless transition to GCU.
All first-time residents, full-time freshmen and transfers are expected to MOVE-IN on Thursday, August 25th from 8:30am to 12:30pm. All residents will receive their housing and roommate assignments from the Office of Residence Life prior to arrival on campus. Please contact residence life at 732-987-2533 if you do not receive this information prior to move-in.
Part-time, commuter, and transfer students will also have an OPTIONAL overnight stay in the residence halls. However, students MUST indicate they would like to stay overnight when they sign-up for orientation.
During orientation at GCU, we invite you to call the campus home while you establish new friendships, explore the beautiful grounds and buildings, enjoy Georgian Court hospitality and most importantly, prepare yourself for the upcoming academic year and your first-year and transfer experience.
