SLU-Madrid's Student Life team and campus ambassadors are ready to help you adjust to your new life as a Billikeño. 

Two campus ambassadors pose for a photo outdoors on the SLU Madrid campus.

Our orientation activities are designed to help you make new friends and learn about our campus and Madrid.

Our Office of Student Life team has organized orientation, but everyone on campus ensures it's a valuable experience. This includes our Campus Ambassadors: upperclassmen who guide you through orientation and are always available for questions you might have from them — a fellow student — versus our staff. You can't miss the Campus Ambassadors — they wear bright orange!  

Schedule of Events: Spring 2024

Monday, Jan. 8: Move-in Day

Host families are open for first-year, transfer and study abroad students to move in. Just because they're open doesn't mean you must move in on this day. Be sure you communicate with your host family so they know when to expect you, and email with questions.

Tuesday, Jan. 9: Orientation begins

Be on the lookout for more information soon about the orientation schedule, but prepare to spend most of  Tuesday with us on campus, learning all the ins and outs of SLU-Madrid.

Wednesday, Jan. 10: First day of classes

Classes start today! Be ready to put your best foot forward. And please, oh please, read the syllabus.

Optional day trips

We are planning optional day trips to places students have loved for years, like Monasterio de Piedra, Segovia and more. We'll have more information available soon about how to register.
