Orientation

Welcome to Lancer Nation!

We are incredibly honored and excited to have you join the Mount Marty community!

Move-In Day

Moving in is the first step in kicking off your college experience, which is why we want to ensure the process goes safely and smoothly for all. 

For the health and safety of yourself, your family and our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that you come to move in ONLY at your assigned date and time. Please only bring one person to help you move in. 

On your assigned date, please enter the campus through the WEST entrance. Orientation leaders will be at the entrance to guide you to your residence hall. 

If you have any questions or concerns about move-in day or your assigned date and time, please contact one of the residence hall directors:
