Orientation Week (O-Week) is a program of social and academic activities designed to introduce students to life and study at UQ. O-Week is generally held the week before classes to help students settle into UQ life before the academic year begins.

O-Week offers social events, sporting activities and study and support programs to help familiarise students with their campus, help them meet people and feel prepared for the year ahead. More importantly it is about feeling connected and comfortable with your university and having fun!

Be sure to register for your essential events, including your Program Orientation Sessions to ensure you have all the right information and tools you need to succeed in your program.
