Arrival Day

You'll move in and get settled on Arrival Day, Thursday, August 26, 2021 and begin Welcome Weekend that afternoon. Your student advisers, house staff, and other student leaders will help you get settled and acquainted with the organizations, traditions, and activities of Connecticut College during our Welcome Weekend programming. 

Please note that students participating in our Odyssey, Genesis and Science Leaders Pre-Orientation programs will be arriving early and should be in touch with the program leaders about their arrival information.

Parents and Families

Parents and Families are welcome to attend our Arrival Day events on Thursday, August 26 and we will have a dedicated program for parents and families in the afternoon, including a welcome from President Bergeron. We are developing our COVID-19 vaccine and testing requirements for guests and will be in touch with more details later this summer. Starting that evening, students will begin a busy schedule of events through the start of classes and will not have time for visits from family and friends.

Detailed schedules for Welcome Weekend will be announced in August 2021.
