Wells Warm-Up is an optional pre-orientation program where new students and families can take care of the "business" end of enrollment, such as billing, financial aid, class registration, academic advising, housing assignments, and more. You are also welcome to spend the night on campus with your parents, free of charge (a good chance to start your move-in shopping list!). We want to take as much stress out of your transition to college life as possible, and attending Warm-Up will save you a lot of steps you would otherwise have to complete during Move-In Day in August.


Once you're on campus, follow staff direction and signage to the Woods Parking Lot. Select the image below to enlarge.
