If you are a FTIC student attending an on-campus, two-day orientation session, you will stay in a residence hall room on campus with a roommate. Students are not permitted to stay in locations off campus during orientation. The cost for this overnight stay is included in the orientation registration charge.
If you are attending orientation with a friend who will also be attending UWF and wish to room together, then you will need to check in to orientation at the same time. This way the staff can put you in the same room. Due to the limited space and time, staff will not be able to hold a space until the requested roommate checks in.
The student will need to bring bedding, towels and toiletries with them when they come to orientation. The University will not be able to provide any of these articles. Also, please be sure to bring a change of clothes for the second day. We request a student not leave campus until orientation is complete on the end of the second day. Therefore, it is important students bring what they need when they arrive. Some of these articles include: a pillow, extra-long sheets for a twin size bed or bedroll, blanket, towel, wash cloth, shampoo, soap, change of clothes, and comfortable shoes. Also, be sure to bring close-toed shoes and comfortable clothes for the Recreation Center.
