Welcome Week 2020

Welcome to USF!

Welcome Week is one of USF's favorite traditions.  It is our official kick-off to the new school year.  The program begins with move-in and provides a week of engaging activities for students alongside the first classes of the year!  This website is meant to show you the different ways you can participate in Welcome Week activities, work with new students, or take part in high impact experiences to connect you with your fellow Cougars.  We hope you take some time to view the website and find ways you can connect.

While things on campus look a little different than we are used to right now, we want to reassure you that you chose the right place, despite the weird time.  Your health and safety are our top priorities.  This year's move-in process has been restructured to adhere to social distancing recommendations and protect the health of the USF community.

Welcome Week is required of all new students.  Students are encouraged to make the appropriate arrangements in order to fully participate in Welcome Week.  Welcome Week will provide you with all the tools you will need to be successful at USF.

As we prepare to welcome our new and returning Cougars to campus - the physical space, the community, and our virtual environments - be sure to check back to this page for updates and information.  As a new student, you can expect outreach from current students, faculty, and staff.  In the meantime, feel free to send any questions or concerns to and a Student Life staff member will get with you as soon as possible.
