Orientation Week

Orientation Week is an introduction to campus life, giving first-year students an opportunity to meet their peers, settle into residence life and learn about the resources available at Queen’s University to support their learning and provide them with extra-curricular opportunities.  It takes place in the week preceding the start of classes.
