Orientation week

Orientation week eases the transition to university and promotes relationship building with fellow students and the campus community. All new UNB Saint John students (first year, international, transfer and mature) are invited to participate in the orientation events.

Our goal is to make you feel welcome, as well as prepared for the upcoming year. During the orientation events, you will have the option to participate in academic, social and recreational activities that will help you feel comfortable in your new environment.

Returning students can also get involved and are invited to certain events. If you’re an upper year student interested in volunteering, email stuserv@unb.ca for more information.

Schedule of events

Check back in August for the Fall 2019 schedule. There will be several days of events, with the biggest being Super Tuesday on Sept 3.

Ask us!

During orientation week, you can find “Ask Me” tables set up across campus. Student Services staff will be able to answer questions about our campus and student resources. The tunnels can be confusing at first, and we’re happy to provide directions.

Apart from the tables, many people on campus will wear “Ask Me” pins. They can answer your questions too. Orientation week is informative, but short. If you have questions later in the academic year, you can ask:

  • instructors
  • Student Services staff
  • other support staff

This is another benefit of our smaller campus size.
