Please be aware,  New Student Orientation will begin on Labor Day Weekend,  and will coincide with nearby Brown University's move in.  We expect that area hotels will fill up quickly.  For more information on accommodations, visit RISD's Accommodations page.

Your student will receive an Orientation schedule with all events listed.  Parents and Families are welcome at all events unless otherwise noted. The events listed below are designed specifically for parents and families.  Your student will receive specific move-in instructions from the Office of Residence Life in their RISD email.
