Mandatory Information Sessions
Welcome new students
We’re excited to hear you’ve chosen uOttawa and we welcome you to the Gee-Gees family!
From August 29 to September 11, we’ve got an action-packed, fun and informative week planned for you, to help you meet new people and familiarize yourself with your new campus. Take part in Welcome Week and start your University journey on the right foot.
Start by registering for your mandatory faculty info session below, then take a look at the events and picture yourself standing amongst a crowd of fellow Gee-Gees, cheering on your team, or singing along with an amazing band.
Faculty info session registration (for newly admitted students only)
Register for your mandatory faculty information session. Meet professors, students in your program and Faculty support staff, all of whom will help you make the most of your university experience.
Civil Law, Common Law, Education and Medicine students, you do not need to fill out these forms. You will be receiving information regarding your arrival on campus directly from your faculty.
English Intensive Program (EIP) students and exchange students do not need to attend a faculty information session. Please attend the EIP or exchange student orientation instead.
Orientation Sessions for International Students

Summer Orientation Sessions for All New Students
Open to all new students, we encourage you to come spend the day on campus at one of the Summer Orientation sessions to get your bearings before the September rush. In addition to addressing questions or concerns about university life, each session focuses on promoting your academic success and personal development.
