Freshman Orientation

This is where you start.

Fall 2014 orientation information is coming soon.

Freshman Orientation is designed for you. During the two-day schedule in the summer, you will:

  • learn more about campus facilities (and where to go for what)
  • get a feel for your academic requirements
  • explore student services
  • get to know your classmates
  • meet UB faculty, staff and other students
  • take your placement tests.

The University of Baltimore is so excited to welcome you to its campus. University offices and centers will be open for you to stop by and ask questions, and you can take a tour of the campus.

Please note: A photo ID is required for all placement tests, so make sure you bring it with you.
