Welcome, New Grinnellians

Welcome to Grinnell College!

We are excited to welcome you to campus! We are looking forward to getting to know you and having the opportunity to work with you over the next few years.

All new students participate in New Student Orientation (NSO). NSO is a series of events and activities for students and their families that help facilitate a successful transition to the College. The NSO website will provide everything you need to know about moving into your residence hall and help you accomplish all the tasks you’ll need to complete before, and shortly after, you arrive on campus. In mid-May, students will also be given access to the Incoming Student Checklist on the institution’s private GrinnellShare website.

Important Dates

  • Move-In and NSO begin Friday, August 23 and conclude Wednesday, August 28
  • Classes start Thursday, August 29

Feel free to contact our office with any questions that you might have. Enjoy your summer, and get excited for your next four years at Grinnell!
