2019 New Student Orientation

Congratulations on your admission to the University of Texas Medical Branch! Every part of our campus community—the faculty, the staff, and your fellow students— is looking forward to welcoming you to campus.


Orientation

New Student Orientation will happen in two parts - an online orientation and an in-person orientation on the Galveston Campus.

Online Orientation
You will receive an email from Student Life to your UTMB account with information regarding Online Orientation. If you need assistance accessing the Online Orientation, please contact us at student.life@utmb.edu or (409) 772-1996.

In-Person Orientation
In-person orientation will take place on August 26th - 28th. The first day of Orientation will begin with an All-School Orientation session and a Peer Roundtable Luncheon. Peer Roundtables are a Q&A Panel with upperclassmen from your school where you can ask any questions you may have about academics, extracurricular activities, or island life! Students will then break out into their individual schools/programs for the remainder of the orientation week.
