Make sure you pack the right stuff. Check the following off your list before you leave home:

  • Print off your reminder (e-mailed to your UAB e-mail address) with orientation information, parking pass, directions, etc.
  • Your memorized BlazerID and password. You will not be able to register for classes without them.
  • Bring a photo ID to obtain your ONE Card.
  • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes – you’ll be walking a lot! It’s a good idea to dress in layers so you’ll be comfortable inside and out.
  • Pack an umbrella and rain gear. 
  • If you’re staying on campus overnight, linens, pillows, and towels are provided. You’ll need to bring your own toiletries and personal items (on-campus accommodations are available for Summer or Fall Freshmen only).

*  While we welcome parents and adult guardians, attending Orientation with family members younger than 16 is not recommended. Please make arrangements for children to be cared for while you are attending Goin’ Green New Student Orientation.
