New International Student Orientation & Events

ISSS organizes orientation and welcome events for new 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. We will have both informational sessions and fun events. Please watch our website for a detailed calendar for upcoming events.
