What's orientation all about?

Orientation 2015 is the University of Calgary's way of welcoming you to our campus community, setting the stage for your success as a student and eventually as a graduate of this university.

Common Reading Program

Engage with your peers and the campus community through the Common Reading Program, our community book club. Every new student has the opportunity to share in this experience.

The Welcome Centre

The Welcome Centre is a spring and summer term service that provides support and programming for new-to-Calgary students as they prepare to make Calgary their home. This year, the Centre will open on May 4, 2015 and will remain open until September 4, 2015.
