University Orientation

Thank you to everyone who made this year's University Orientation a success!  Visit the University Orientation 2014 Facebook page to check out photos from the events!

If you are a first-year Queen’s student living in an on-campus residence, University Orientation is how you get to spend your first few days at Queen’s!

University Orientation begins on Move-In Day (Sunday, August 31, 2014), and runs until Tuesday, September 2. During these three days, your don – an upper-year student who lives in residence with you on your floor - will lead you through lots of activities and events that will introduce you to life at Queen’s and the Kingston community, which will become your home away from home!

During University Orientation, you’ll have a chance to

  • Get settled in your room
  • Get to know the other students living on your floor & have fun!
  • Get the inside scoop from upper-year students as you tour the Queen’s campus
  • Get to know services and resources on campus - both academic and non-academic

Please note that University Orientation is a part of living in residence and no registration is necessary! 

You will get a full schedule of University Orientation events when you move in, but take a look at the current line up of events this year: here!
 
After University Orientation, students have the opportunity to participate in Faculty Orientation. Learn more about faculty orientation here.
 
**Please note: photographs will be taken during Orientation week - if you do not wish your photograph to be taken, please let us know by emailing fall.orientation@queensu.ca.
