In-coming freshman students are mandated to participate in the orientation program arranged by SUMS. As a new student, you might feel confused about the new setting where you have entered. Thus, SUMS has planned this orientation program to help you get acquainted with SUMS campuses, administration staff and offices, SUMS’ regulations, and some areas of Shiraz. Besides, during the orientation program, students will be assigned their own counselor who will support them throughout their years at SUMS.
SUMS provides all students with well-equipped dormitories in Shiraz. We provide dormitories for all students, both girls and boys.
