The International Orientation Program provides you with an opportunity to meet new and returning international students. It’s also your best opportunity to learn about visa and employment regulations, cultural and academic adjustment issues, housing and dining, financial aid, and everyday life in Oberlin and the United States.
Residence halls open for new international students on Friday, August 21, 2020. Please do not arrive on campus prior to August 21 unless you are attending a separate pre-arrival program. The residence halls are not able to accommodate you before that date.
