  • Completed immunization documentation, if you have not already sent it to MU Student Health
  • Comfortable walking shoes and casual clothes
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Umbrella in case of rain
  • (Optional) Laptop, if you’d like to have it configured for the campus network while you’re here

Additional items if you’ve registered for the optional overnight stay during Summer Welcome:

  • Bathrobe and shower shoes (residence halls have separate community bathrooms for men and women)
  • Personal toiletries (we will provide towels and bed linens)
  • Change of clothes for day two

Virtual Sessions

If you are unable to attend orientation in person and opt for one of our virtual sessions, make sure you have the following ready prior to your scheduled orientation date:

  • A laptop or desktop computer is recommended, but you can access your Zoom sessions via a mobile device or tablet if needed (make sure you have a full charge!)
  • Reliable internet connection
  • A place to take notes
  • Finding a quiet, private space is recommended, but if you will be in a shared or public area, make sure you use headphones or earbuds
