Choose from a variety of welcome events and orientation programs for incoming first-year students.
Over the summer, there will be online opportunities for you to connect virtually with your fellow students and get answers to your questions about courses, programs, fees, finances and student life at the college. For September, register for the full six-day orientation, the two-day academic-focused orientation or just stop by for UC Day – it’s up to you.
Welcome Sessions and Orientation events focus on welcoming you to your new home, helping you connect with other first-year students, and giving you a chance to learn about university life with an opportunity to explore the world-class city of Toronto.
We know that starting University can be exciting and a little daunting. No need to worry though, our exciting and fun first-year events will help you transition to campus life as you start your new journey. These are experiences that you are sure to never forget.
As a result of COVID-19, Welcome Sessions will not take place in person in June 2020. More information about online opportunities will soon be available to help you connect with fellow students, virtually tour the college and residences, and learn about course enrolment and registration.
Join us for a week-long orientation program filled with events and activities to help you get acquainted with each other, the campus and the city.
