New International Student Orientation & Events

International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) organizes orientation and welcome events for incoming international students every Spring and Fall semester. These events provide an opportunity for students to meet their future classmates and get oriented to The University of Texas at Austin, the city of Austin, the state of Texas, and the United States. Join us for both informational sessions and fun events.

Make sure you keep an eye on the full list of events below for the most up to date information.
