Updates from Our Office

The University of South Florida (USF) and the Office of Orientation continue to monitor the concerns related to COVID- 19 (coronavirus). At this time, there have been a few reported cases of coronavirus at USF. We are taking the necessary steps to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. For the latest updates on how USF is responding to the coronavirus threat, visit our website.

This year, the University of South Florida will be hosting orientation in a virtual learning environment. This program change will ensure the health and safety of our students, staff and community during this challenging time.

Your online introduction to life as a USF Bull will include all the details you need to get off to a great start at our university, including tips on reaching your academic goals, getting involved and finding support.

We didn’t forget about parents and guardians during the design of this virtual experience. You can expect the same high-quality support for your onboarding and transition into the USF family.

Should you have questions or need assistance, please contact us by emailing myorientation@usf.edu or by calling (813) 974-3060, M-F 8am-5pm EST.  In order to receive the most timely and effective communication, we request that you email us at myorientation@usf.edu and provide your University ID # in the body of the email.
