Family Orientation Housing – 2022

Will you be joining your incoming First Year student at their summer Orientation session? Feeling nostalgic? Stay on campus during orientation!  On-campus housing for parents and families of students attending orientation is available in our Avent Ferry Complex, located off Western Blvd and Avent Ferry Rod.

Housing is available for $50 per bedroom per night. Each bedroom contains 2 twin-extra long (XL) beds and a private en suite bathroom. Space may be reserved for the night if your student’s  first day at Orientation.  If you live over 3 hours away, we may also be able to accommodate space for you the night prior to your student’s Orientation as well.

How do I register?

Spaces are limited and fill up quickly.  Reservations must be made online at least five (5) full business days in advance of your intended arrival. Additionally, students attending New Student Orientation are not permitted to stay with their parents in Avent Ferry. Incoming students attending Orientation will be housed in Lee Hall with other students attending the same session.
