Canberra Orientation

Prepare for Semester 1, 2019 at our Bruce Campus.

Orientation takes place from 4 February to 8 February.

Orientation is your chance to settle in and get ready for uni life - meet other students in your course, find your way around the campus, and get all the information you need for a flying start to the semester.

Enrolment Help

Once you have all the information you need about your course, it is a good idea to get some enrolment help. From 4 February to 15 February go to level B in the Library (Building 8), we will have staff available to help you to complete your enrolment and organise your timetable there.
