Orientation UQ

The Semester 1 2021 Orientation site is currently being updated and will launch January 2021

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 15 February – Friday 19 February) 

  • O-Week is the official start to University for new students and is held during the week before classes start. It is expected you attend all faculty, school and compulsory orientation sessions.

Connect Week (Monday 22 February – Friday 26 February)

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

New students

Please check back in January when the new orientation website is open to start planning your events and sessions. Your faculty and school will also be in contact with you about Orientation and what to expect closer to your orientation. Once you accept your offer, please check your student email address regularly for important information. In the meantime, please make sure you have read the starting at UQ website thoroughly so you are ready for the start of Semester.
