Welcome to Reed College

Congratulations! The Orientation team, part of the college's student life division, is here to support your successful transition to Reed. Please contact us with any questions. 

Incoming students will receive an invitation to an online platform to review Orientation materials at their own pace before arriving on-campus. This will include a COVID-19 training that must be completed prior to move-in. In-person New Student Orientation will begin on Monday, August 24. It will be a combination of live, interactive virtual events and small, in-person, physically-distanced programs. The Orientation team is hard at work on designing an informative, engaging, and fun week to help new students transition to Reed and make connections. 

The college is developing a phased move-in schedule dependent on testing capacity and physical distancing measures. We plan to be able to inform students of their assigned move-in timeframes in early July. Students can find detailed protocols regarding the move-in process hereand they should plan to move-in without assistance from family or guests.
