  • Orientation is designed to help introduce and acclimate new students and families to all of the resources and opportunities available to students as they start their journey as New School students. Students will meet the faculty and staff who are here to support them and begin to build academic and social communities with new classmates from around the world. 

    This event is mandatory for all on-campus students and not required for online-only students.

    All incoming visiting and exchange students must attend the required Orientation events held by their New School college or academic department and required university-wide sessions.

    This page, along with your New School email account, will be your hub for all Orientation programming, so please get in the habit of checking both regularly. And if you haven’t yet, don’t forget to follow us on Instagram.
