How to Sign Up for BlockU

Freshman are able to sign up for BlockU Programs when they attend the University of Utahs’s New Student Orientations in the summer. Sign-up is on a first come first serve basis.

If a student knows in advance which BlockU they’d like to join, it is possible to put a “hold” on that BlockU by contacting Andrea Haag at The information you should include in your email is:

  • Name
  • Student ID (uNID)
  • BlockU Preference
  • Date you will attend the University's New Student Orientation

Please note that if there is space available in the program you are interested in, a spot will be held for you until you attend orientation. If you do not sign up for the BlockU being held for you at orientation, your spot will be given to another student.
