Weeks of Welcome 2020

Don’t miss out on Weeks of Welcome events, including the virtual Block U photo.

Welcome to a new academic year at the University of Utah. Whether you are new to campus or gearing up for your final semester, we hope you join us at Weeks of Welcome 2020, formerly known as Welcome Week.

Weeks of Welcome kicks off Thursday, Aug. 20, 2020, and runs through Sunday, Sept. 13, 2020.

Weeks of Welcome is an exciting time on campus for all students at the U. Offices, departments, student organizations and colleges all across campus celebrate the new academic year with events and opportunities for you to get involved and embark on new ways to make the most of your college experience.

Of course, due to COVID-19, this year’s events will look different. The Office of Orientation & Transition staff has been working hard to ensure students still feel the support and excitement of Weeks of Welcome while adhering to important health and safety protocols.
