First Weekend


Certain student populations must register for First Weekend since they are not required to have meal plans. A good rule of thumb—new-to-Wright State students who are not living in a residence hall, should register for First Weekend. Students should register regardless if they purchase any meals.

Residential students living in The Woods, Honors, or Hamilton Hall do not need to register for First Weekend. You will receive your materials when you move in.

Registration for First Weekend 2022 is now closed. Didn't register? First-year and transfer commuter students who didn't register should still attend First Weekend and follow the standard arrival procedures.

Commuter students who did not buy meal tickets can still purchase meals at the register.


Once registered, the First Weekend team will prepare your materials for your arrival.

Upon your arrival to campus, check-in will be located at the Turning Points (B.A.R.T.) sculpture near University Hall. Enter through the University Blvd. entrance. If available, we recommend parking in lots 6710, or 4 near the Community Center. Once checked in, you will receive any meal tickets you purchased, your official First Weekend t-shirt, and your nametag. All students should download the CORQ app for an interactive schedule throughout the weekend.

Early Meal Ticket Pick Up

New students living in an on-campus apartment can pick up their meal tickets during commuter check-in on Friday, August 19, or at Student Involvement and Leadership during office hours on August 18–August 20.

Commuter students who purchased meal tickets for Thursday dinner can pick up their meal ticket from Student Involvement and Leadership before 5 p.m. on Thursday.
