What to Expect

Lafayette College continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and government/state recommendations. Any impact or changes to the Pre-Orientation Service Program (POSP), early move-in schedule, program camps, and/or the number of individuals accepted to the program will be communicated to students as soon as possible.

If you’re selected to join us for POSP 2022,  you might find this information helpful in learning what to expect.

Please direct questions you may have about POSP, the move-in process, or student life at Lafayette College to a return student leader via the Contact page. Contact information for Landis Center Professional Staff can be found at the Landis Center for Community Outreach website.

Moving In

All POSP First Year Students must arrive on campus on the first day of the program between 9:00 A.M. and 12:00 P.M. Unfortunately, we are unable to make exceptions for any student arriving early to campus. Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions or the Move-In Move-Out section of the Residence Life website for detailed information about moving to campus.

A list of items students should pack for POSP will be emailed after students are admitted to the program. 

Computer Access

For detailed information about computer access at Lafayette, please visit the Technology Guide for New Students on the Information Technology Services website. You might also check out ITS’s Frequently Asked Questions page for additional information. Please be advised that College Bookstore will NOT be open on Sunday, August 18th. Any student who needs to purchase the ALL-LAN cable will have time during the POSP camp (Monday-Wednesday) to go to the bookstore.
