New Student Orientation

Welcome to the UMW Community!

Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Mary Washington! New Student Orientation is a special time for students and the entire Mary Washington community. We are thrilled to welcome you.

This year, due to ongoing concerns with COVID-19, our New Student Orientation program will be virtual, but no less lively or exciting. Registration is open!

As information becomes available about the New Student Orientation process, we will make it available to your official UMW email account. Please feel free to email with questions.

P.S.: You can also connect with UMW virtually:

Register for one or more of our virtual interest webinars. These sessions are a great way to learn more about UMW while staying safely at home.

Check out our video view books with faculty, staff, and students sharing campus traditions, experiential learning opportunities, and even some “day in the life” student perspectives.
