Welcome to the University of Alberta Orientation website. Our office operates as the hub of transition programming on the University of Alberta Campus.

Orientation is a great opportunity to learn about your new school from academic, administrative and social perspectives. You'll make new friends as you integrate into campus life. We have great presentations, tours and activities lined up for you to learn about all of the things transitioning to your new campus will involve!

A big thank-you to all new students and volunteers who helped us make Orientation 2015 great! If you're interested in volunteering for our program next year, keep your eyes peeled for opportunities to be a Team Facilitator in October, and opportunities to be an Orientation Volunteer in February!

For students beginning their studies in 2016, Orientation will occur on Wednesday August 31, 2016, which will be followed by Welcome Events for eight days which will continue to welcome all students to campus.

Welcome to the University of Alberta! Get ready to start something great!
