USC Orientation Programs




Early-Arrival accommodations are available for students and family members who wish to arrive the night before an on-campus summer freshman session. Please check the “Early-Arrival” box on your reservation form and state the number of people who will need rooms (both student and guests).

The additional costs for Early-Arrival accommodations are:

Student $60
Parent/Guest – double/shared occupancy $80
Parent/Guest – single occupancy $100

Early-Arrival check-in for freshman sessions is available from 4 p.m. – 10 p.m. the day before the program. Orientation Advisors will coordinate informal opportunities for games and icebreakers so students and parents may meet each other.

Early-Arrival check-in for transfer sessions is available from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. the day before the program at the Orientation Programs office located in the Student Union Building, Suite B-7. There are no scheduled activities on this day.

Students attending the International Orientation session have the option to request early move-in when making their Orientation reservation. Students may begin moving in on the Sunday immediately following the Orientation session for a $60 per day fee.


There are no early-arrival accommodations provided at the Mid-Year Orientation. Students and parents/guests should make arrangements at a local hotel.
