Welcome to the Orientation Planner! This site is currently being updated. Please check back in June for Semester 2 2021 orientation updates.


Welcome Weeks (O-Week and Connect Week)

Welcome Weeks is a series of social and academic activities designed to introduce you to life and study at UQ. Orientation Week (O-Week) focuses on your faculty orientation and overall induction to UQ, and Connect Week is a supporting week that hosts a number of social events, networking opportunities and academic and learning workshops to help you get ahead and get connected.

Orientation Week (Monday 19 July-Friday 23 July)

O-Week is the official induction to The University of Queensland for new students and is held during the week before semester starts. It is expected you attend all faculty, school and compulsory orientation sessions applicable to you.


Connect Week (Monday 26 July-Friday 30 July)

Connect Week is a supporting week that offers new students social, sporting, study and support sessions and events to help familiarise themselves with campus, meet new people, network, get prepared for study and most importantly have fun!


New students

Please check back at the end of June when the new orientation website is open to start planning your events and sessions.
