Canberra Orientation

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
  • get all the information you need for a flying start to the semester.


Semester 1 2020, Monday 3 February - Thursday 6 February


The full program is coming soon, but don't miss out on these must-attend sessions.

Course Advice

'Course Advice' sessions are a great way to start orientation. Each course has a session where you can learn what to expect and meet faculty staff and other students studying your degree.

Study Skills Essentials

The 'Study Skills Essentials' session will help you get off to a great start with your studies and provide tips for success at UC, including:

  • understanding the unit outline
  • tips from unit conveners
  • understanding referencing and plagiarism
  • the study help available.

Getting started

Enrolment help

Once you have all the information you need about your course, it is a good idea to get some enrolment help.

From 3 - 14 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.

Student ID card

Student cards are printed from the new Student Connect Hub, located in the Security and Parking Office (Building 8) and open 9am - 5pm.

Why not order ahead and collect in 48hrs - go to MyUC.

Campus tours

From 3 - 6 February, tours are available on the hour 10am - 2pm. Tours leave from the Student Ambassador information stall located near Building 8.
