Welcome to Campus
There's been a lot of information sent to you this summer, but we have you covered!
You are assigned move-in times based on your residential floor and building. List of move-in times can be found here on the first page for the orientation booklet at the bottom of the page.
Help Us Keep Things Moving
Please don’t arrive earlier than your assigned move-in time. When you arrive for move-in, please know that you may be waiting in line behind other cars for a bit as we move families through the lots.

You can find directions to campus, airport shuttle information, local hotel recommendations, and a campus map here.
A temporary parking pass was sent with your Orientation packet. Please display this pass clearly on your dashboard. If you need passes for additional cars, we will have extra copies to distribute when you pull up for move in. You will have 30 minutes to unload your car (and plenty of help will be available!) and you will then move your car to the college’s parking garage on Malaga StreetBack To Top
Florida weather in August is very hot and humid and we often experience afternoon rain. Dress in cool, comfortable clothing and bring an umbrella. A water bottle is good to have on hand and we will have water stations available. The residence halls are often a little warmer than normal on move-in day with the doors open for move-in. They will cool down within the first 24 hours. All events that day are casual, so please feel free to come to all meetings, meals, and events as you are.Back To Top
The Bistro in the Ringhaver Student Center and POD Market at The Commons will be open until 3pm if you need to grab a meal or snack. Dinner will be served in both the Dining Hall and the Student Center starting at 4pm.

Our Students Accounts and Financial Aid Offices will have representatives on hand in their offices if you need to meet with them to settle up your account or ask questions. In addition, a representative from the college’s health insurance plan will be available in the Hanke Hall lobby.Back To Top
There are two identical Parent/Family Orientation sessions scheduled on Saturday, at 12:00pm and 3:30pm, that will introduce you to many of the key administrators on campus that students will work with throughout the year, and will answer some common questions that families have as their students start their Flagler journey. We would encourage parents and families to attend one of these sessions.
From 4pm-6:30pm families can join their student for dinner and a final room visit, then we will ask that you depart campus and leave them in our care – we promise we’ll take good care of them, and there are some great places downtown for you to celebrate your student’s successful transition to college!

Flagler College has adopted a new attendance policy that is effective for the Fall 2018 semester. This new policy allows faculty independence to establish specific guidelines for attendance in their courses. All faculty will discuss their specific policy with students on the first day of class, emphasizing in particular the relationship between attendance, interaction in the classroom, and evaluation. View the full policy and find answers to frequently asked questions here.Back To Top

As we dive into a new school year, keep these things in mind.
As a reminder, the Passport Co-Curricular program requires that students attend:
- Three events per semester during Freshman and Sophomore years (under 60-credit hours);
- Two events per semester during Junior and Senior years (over 60-credit hours).”
- Each academic year, one of these events must be diversity related.
