Orientation at SVA offers students the opportunity to meet faculty, staff and other students before classes begin.  It also helps acclimate new students to the SVA campus, community and NYC.  Check out the photos above from Fall 2015 Orientation Week.


Details of the Fall 2016 Orientation Week schedule will be made available over the summer. 

Fall 2016 Orientation Week

Fall 2016 Orientation Week will begin on Sunday August 28, 2016, and will have events continuing through-out the week until Sunday September 4, 2016.  We look forward to welcoming you on campus!

  • Orientation Leaders, who are current SVA students, will reach out to new students over the Summer, 2016.  Look for their Meet and Greet events during Fall 2016 Orientation Week too.
  • Students moving in to the residence halls should check email correspondences from Residence Life for details on move-in dates.  General move-in dates can be confirmed through the SVA academic calendar.
