  • meet your lecturers and classmates
  • familiarise yourself with campus facilities 
  • get to know your student support teams
  • get to know later year students
  • learn all about the Library 
  • log in to your portals
  • pick up your student ID card (send us your photo now!)
  • ask questions, eat food and have fun!
     

By attending Orientation, you'll be able to find your classroom easily in Week 1, know your way around the Library and sit next to a friend in class. It's a great way to start!
