Orientation is the time for new students to get acquainted with the University! Find out where things are, how to use our systems, what spaces are available for you to enjoy and who will support you during your time studying with us.
Welcome to Orientation!
Academic Orientation will run over the first week of the Orientation Experience and is specifically designed for new students to help you settle into University study. Essential presentations will be hosted on campus so that you get all the information and support you need for your first year of study, as well as plenty of fun activities throughout the week.
O' Week will run over the second week of the Orientation Experience. Hosted by the Waikato Students’ Union, O' Week is meant for both current students and new students to have fun and make connections. There will be activities, competitions and prizes up for grabs. Check out the WSU Facebook page for more information.
