Your transition into the University of St. Thomas begins at Orientation!
During New Student Orientation, you and your family get to know the St. Thomas campus community, our programs, other students and their families.
Most importantly, at Orientation, you become a Celt.
At UST’s Orientation you will make your first UST friends, meet your professors, join clubs, and serve the Houston community. We require you to attend Orientation, but we make your time on campus fun and engaging. Find out more below!
If you are transferring into the University of St. Thomas, you get to choose the session that will best fit your needs. We offer two: one that is for busy transfer students who know the ropes, and one that is for students who prefer a traditional orientation. Register for the one that best suits you!

Parents, legal guardians, and families play a vital role in the success of their students. Families have the option to attend one of our Family Celt ROAR Days with their incoming student throughout the summer. During Celt ROAR Day you will learn about the resources available to your student outside of the classroom to help them reach graduation. This orientation is designed for parents and legal guardians only and we do not have space to accommodate any extra guests.
Graduate Student Orientation
Each graduate program hosts their own orientation session to tailor information to their programs. If you are an incoming graduate student and have questions, reach out to your program to ask questions directly.
Family Weekend is the perfect opportunity for families to reconnect with students, learn about campus programs, and services. Current students are invited to bring their families back to UST to enjoy a fun weekend filled with a variety of events. Mark your calendars for October 18th-20th for our annual Family Weekend!
