New Student Orientation
2020 New Student Orientation Overview
Join the Kean community! We’ve planned a fun-filled and academically focused Summer Orientation for the Freshman Class of 2024.
Incoming freshman students are required to attend this important overnight orientation event. The two-day session will give you the experience of living in a residence hall, navigating campus, registering for classes, finding out about campus support services and meeting your classmates.
Please note that your participation in this event is mandatory, even if you do not intend to take advantage of on-campus housing during the school year.
- If you require disability accommodations, notify the Office of Disability Services two weeks prior to your orientation session.

What to Bring?
Protect the things you bring to Kean University. Kean University does not provide personal property insurance so students should leave electronic devices, such as iPads and laptops, at home for this event. It is your responsibility to secure all personal property while you are on campus.
