Orientation is a two-day program for incoming first-year students that is held on the Bryant campus in June.

In addition, Bryant offers new multicultural and international students a support program called 4MILE@Bryant which takes place in the days just before Move In Day. This program provides connection to the resources and networks necessary for success at Bryant University. You have the opportunity to move in early and get acquainted with your new home. 4MILE offers academic, personal, social, and cultural support throughout your college experience.


Bryant pairs incoming international students with current ones. This allows you to ask all of your questions about living at Bryant and in the United States of someone who has already gone through it! You will receive an email about the matching system shortly after your letter of admission.
