What is the Orientation event?

It's an opportunity to find out more about your course and the services and support available to assist you at Western Sydney University. You will also have an opportunity to meet your teachers (academics) and fellow students, and discover your campus. You can organise your student ID card, get timetable support and collect your Student Diary.

When is Orientation?

Orientation sessions and activities are usually held on campus two weeks before session starts.

2019 Spring Orientation has concluded.

Week 1 Information Stalls

Don't be afraid to ask for help! 'Ask Us' Assistants are available at information stalls in Week 1 on your campus to answer all your questions. Look out for the 'New to Western' banners.

Campus and Library orientation

Following your Orientation session, you can take a campus tour with one of our Ask Us Assistants (senior students), to orientate you to services, facilities and important locations on your campus such as your School's building, the Co-Op retail store, cafeterias and Student Central. Be sure to also visit our state-of-the-art libraries to familiarise yourself with all the exciting services and assistance available there.
