Arrival Day

It's finally here, your first day at Colgate!

Once you arrive on campus, you'll check in and receive your orientation materials, then walk up to your residence hall, where your belongings will be waiting for you. Be sure to honk loudly and proudly when you pass the “Honk If You Love Colgate” sign.

When you arrive at Colgate, your belongings will be transported by student staff to your room. Please print the label for your Residence Hall assignment and attach them to all of your boxes, bags, and belongings ahead of your arrival, so our staff knows where to bring them.
