We look forward to welcoming you for your On-campus Experience.

Students: Orientation invite emails are sent to your U-M email, so be sure you have created a uniqname after paying your enrollment deposit. These emails were sent starting in late April. However, if you recently paid your enrollment deposit or created your uniqname, expect to receive your invite about a week afterward.
