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) and Re-orientation 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 2020

O-week was great fun this year. Check out UCOL's social channels for photographs and videos of the events across our four campuses. 

Re-orientation July

This is a chance for returning students to get settled back into UCOL life, and for new students to get familiar with their surroundings, meet their classmates, find out more about what UCOL has to offer. We have events across our campuses as well as academic workshops.
