It's all about putting U into UCOL.

We want to make sure your first week at UCOL is a great experience. Join us for official welcomes, academic and career sessions, food and fun. Attending Orientation Week (O-Week) will help you meet other students in your class, find your way around campus and prepare you for study.

Dates: February & July

O-week February 2019
