Welcome to New Student Orientation

Welcome to the Panther Nation! Our New Student Orientation is specifically designed for incoming undergraduate freshman and transfer students (with 30 or more transferable college credits).  Our goal is to have our students have a successful start to their first year at Prairie View A&M University. At your session, we provide access to information and services required to successfully assist new students in transitioning to university life. For all incoming students, ORIENTATION IS MANDATORY!

Please note: Students we are currently out of freshman housing, for off-campus locations view our Off-Campus Housing List

If you have specific housing questions, please contact University College at 936-261-5990 or University Village at 936-261-5950.
