NSO Housing & Meal Accommodations

For First-Year Students

You will be staying overnight in Pollock Halls during NSO. Pollock Halls are not air conditioned, but a box fan will be provided. Included with your program at no additional charge are:

  • your overnight stay in an on-campus residence hall;
  • dinner in a dining commons on Day 1 with your orientation leader; and
  • breakfast and lunch on Day 2 (suggestions will be provided for you during NSO).

You should bring a change of clothes and toiletries with you; we will provide bed linens, a pillow, and towels. Blankets are available at the Commons Desk upon request; but you may want to bring your own blanket if you get cold at night.

Consider bringing additional money for snacks as desired, as the meal card you will be issued for the program cannot be reloaded.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate requests for additional housing nights (see parent & family information below for options) or accommodate requests for preferred roommates.

If you require accessible housing during NSO, please add the information to your NSO reservation. You'll find a space to add 'particular accommodations' on the questionnaire page of your reservation.
