Welcome Week

Welcome Regent Royal! We are so excited to have you join the family. Welcome Week is mandatory for first-time freshman and transfers 23 and younger.  It is a program designed for you and is proven to build your confidence for when you begin classes since you had this time to meet friends, navigate classes, and settle in.

Parents and other guests are encouraged to participate in the activities of the “move-in” day only. After move-in day, there is no further orientation programming for parents or guests. Parents and guests are encouraged to allow the students to immerse themselves fully into the Welcome Week experience beyond move-in day.

Regent’s orientation packet is available to all students, parents and guests online at www.regent.edu/orientation/packet. Doing so allows us to add more content (including videos), make it available well before you arrive on campus, and exercise good financial stewardship. Since materials are available all year round, we will update materials each year by the end of May.

Parents and guests can stay at Founders Inn with advanced registration, but they are not permitted to stay with students in the residence halls. In addition, we have provided a list of nearby accommodations for parents and guests below.
