About New Student Orientation

UNF’s Freshmen Orientation is designed to provide you with key tools and resources necessary to have a successful academic career at UNF.  Filled with informational sessions, academic advising, student life opportunities and meeting and interacting with other incoming Ospreys, this mandatory program is our perfect orientation.


Most New Student Orientation programs consist of two days of activities. The first day consists of meeting with your First Year Experience (FYE) Mentor, meeting fellow incoming Osprey students, learning about UNF's traditions and history, housing, and attending a class. The second day is filled with exciting activities such as academic advising, participating in workshop sessions and the student life opportunities. 


A few of the programs are for students and parents to attend together. However, there will be some activities that are just for students (academic advising is a student-only activity). During the time of the student-only programs there will be a separate Parent and Family session. See the Parent and Family Orientation website for further details.

Since attending orientation is a factor in your academic success it is MANDATORY that UNF freshmen students attend all functions of the Orientation program. It is not mandatory that parents attend.


If attending an overnight orientation program and you require accessible housing, please contact us at (904) 620-1722 as soon as possible so that necessary arrangements can be made.
