Arrival Information

Please plan to arrive on August 20 or 21, 2020. Welcome Week begins the morning of August 22. Our closest airport is the Evansville Regional Airport (EVV). When you arrive at the airport, you will need to make the appropriate transportation arrangements to get to campus. There are several taxi and ride services (i.e., Uber) available in Evansville. Just tell them you need to go to the University of Evansville, and which residence hall, and they will know where to take you. There will be a resident assistant on duty to help you find your room.

Student Orientation

You will receive an email with instructions to sign up for an online orientation and any placement tests you may need to complete. These tests are designed to assess your previous course work and determine the appropriate beginning level of instruction for you here at UE.


After we have received confirmation that you have sent your admission deposit, you will receive email instructions describing how to register for housing and a meal plan. Housing is assigned on a first come, first served basis. Students who have registered for housing will be able to move in beginning August 20.

A phased move-in approach will be implemented for moving into residence halls. During the week of July 13, students will get access to their Room Assignment Confirmation Letter by and email from Residence Life. During the same week, students received an email with a link to schedule a move-in appointment. An updated email was sent the week of July 27. Be sure to schedule a new appointment to accommodate new opening dates!

Before you apply for a check-in slot, you must go to WebAdvisor and sign the Addendum to your housing and Food Service Contract. It is located under “Housing and Meal Plans”.

Once you have signed your addendum you can register for a designated 3-hour move-in time to accommodate social distancing guidelines. Watch for an email from Residence Life.

Vaccination Requirements

The MOST IMPORTANT aspect of finalizing your preparation for arriving at the University of Evansville is completing your health and immunization information. Public health laws safeguarding group living are very strict. Without proper medical/health documentation, admittance to the University is prohibited. The cost of a medical examination, inoculations and a TB test is expensive in the United States and must be paid by the student. Having these requirements completed by you and your family physician (doctor) at home will help you avoid added complications.

UE’s Crayton E. and Ellen Mann Health Center makes clear all health requirements on the health center website.

It is important that you submit all required medical information. The University of Evansville requires all full-time graduate and undergraduate students, including all international students, to provide their health history and immunization records. The Physical Assessment must be completed before the first day of class, otherwise the student may not be allowed to register for or attend classes.

You must have the following immunizations:

Two Measles, Mumps, Rubella vaccinations (MMR), a Tetanus shot within the last 10 years, and Meningitis vaccinations. The State of Indiana requires all students to receive a TB skin test in the United States. You will receive one on campus for a $20 fee. Please refer to the requirements.

NOTE: If you do not have your physical examination and vaccinations completed before you arrive, you will be required to do so at your cost before you can register for classes. Please plan accordingly.

Paying the Bill

Your acceptance packet includes an estimated invoice for your first session. Before you register for classes, you must pay your expenses; therefore, we recommend that you wire your funds directly to the University of Evansville before you arrive. Wire transfer instructions are included on the estimated invoice. Please indicate your name and UE identification number, which you will find on the invoice.

NOTE: Embassy-sponsored students must have a valid financial guarantee letter in order to register for classes.
