Congratulations, Spartans, and welcome to your new home at The University of Tampa!

UT is dedicated to making your transition one of a kind and offers orientation programs designed to help first-year, transfer, commuter and international students successfully transition to our community. Throughout your orientation, you will be exposed to many valuable resources, interact with a variety of campus student leaders and participate in social experiences to begin to make new connections with fellow Spartans.

Your fUTure starts here! Online Orientation opens Dec. 1!

As a new student, you will have the opportunity to get to know your campus prior to your arrival by completing UT's online orientation program. This program has been specifically designed with YOU in mind! From navigating academics to getting involved on campus, this program will help you familiarize yourself with the many resources available to you as a Spartan.  The online orientation program for all new incoming students (residents, commuters and transfers) starting in Spring 2023 will be available Dec 1. You can access online orientation through your MyUTampa account, and it must be completed prior to your arrival on campus.
