UBC’s orientation programs are your chance to connect with other new students, meet your professors, and get to know your way around campus. These orientations are designed to meet the needs of new students, transfer students, mature students, and graduate students.
Though the orientations on the Okanagan and Vancouver campuses are unique, they all feature:
Learn more about Jump Start, an orientation for first-year students who are new to Kelowna
Learn more about Create, an orientation for all new-to-UBC students
Learn more about move-in day, for students living in residence
Learn more about the Parent Conference, an informational session for your family or guardians
