Orientation & New Student Programs

Your Hofstra journey begins with New Student Orientation – an on-campus, three-day, two-night program where all incoming first-year students get their first glimpse of life at Hofstra. Note: Transfer students are offered a one-day orientation experience and should visit the Transfer Orientation webpage for more information about their specific program.

Orientation Programs

Hofstra University is planning our summer orientation for incoming first-year students as an on-campus, three-day, two-night program. However, due to the evolving nature of regulations and guidance related to COVID-19, we ask that you DO NOT MAKE ANY TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS AT THIS POINT. In the event that the program moves to an online format, we will send updated information to your Hofstra email address.
