Reservations & Dates

Reservations for Students and Guests

To reserve your space at orientation, sign in to our online reservation system using your myZou username and password. You will need to reserve a space for yourself and each person (guest) attending with you. View our Frequently Asked Questions page for help with logging in.

Note: space for each session is limited. Wait to make hotel and travel reservations until after your orientation reservation is confirmed.

Reservations & Checklist


After you’ve reserved your spot and registered any guests, you can log back in to reference your orientation and advising checklist. This will help you stay up-to-date and make sure you’re prepared for each step of the orientation and advising process. These steps and other details are outlined on our How-To: Summer Welcome page.
