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.
Hofstra University is planning our summer orientation for incoming first-year students as an on-campus, three-day, two-night program for the following sessions: Weeks 2,3,4,5,6 and 8. Attending orientation in-person supports students in learning campus, engaging with future classmates, and enjoying the fun activities that take place each orientation. Weeks 1 and 7 will be virtual and online, and are intended for incoming students who have considerations due to the current public health concerns. We ask that students check their Hofstra email address as we will be sending updates about both types of sessions as information becomes available including arrival times, COVID test results, possible vaccination requirements, and technology requirements for the virtual sessions.
