University Orientation

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!

This year, University Orientation runs from September 6 - 8, 2015. 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
  • 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! 

After University Orientation, students have the opportunity to participate in Faculty Orientation. Learn more about faculty orientation.
