Orientation & Moving

Crusader Days 2017

Crusader Days New Student Orientation

College is a huge transition. Crusader Days, our new student orientation program, is designed to equip students with the knowledge and support they need to have a successful transition to life at UD.

Crusader Days for Fall 2017 is August 18-22. Residence Hall move-in for new Fall 2017 students is Friday, August 18, 2017 and fall classes will begin on Wednesday, August 23, 2017. We pack a lot into those four days, so get excited! We are thrilled to welcome you to the University of Dallas!

Be sure to look at the New Student Forms page to help your transition to UD be as smooth as possible. Remember: If you are planning to live on campus, you will not receive your housing assignment until your housing deposit is paid and the university receives your completed health forms and housing contract.
