Spring on the York College campus

Fall Orientation

Welcome to YCP! We're here to help in your transition to your new home away from home.

At York College, you are a part of the community from day one. That's why our Orientation Leaders, faculty and administrators spend the first four days of your college career showing you the ropes. 

  • Resident Students: The first thing you will want to do when you arrive to campus is check-in to your assigned residence hall. Once you finish moving-in, you will need to check-in for Orientation under the tent on the Student Union Lawn.
  • Commuter Students: You can come directly to the tent on the Student Union Lawn to check-in for Orientation. You can then take some time to explore campus, enjoy lunch in the dining hall or pick up your books from the York College Bookstore.

*If you are unable to check-in before 1:00 p.m., materials will be available in the Student Activities Office, Room 205 in the Student Union.
