How to register for orientation workshops

Registrations today for workshops and sessions held during orientation.

Many sessions during orientation week require registration. This is because seating is limited and places fill up quickly.

To register you will need to have a UniPass set up.

Once you have your Unipass and zID, you will use these to register for workshops and sessions.

Event registration close 15 minutes prior to the event start time.

Orientation workshops will go along way to help you hit the ground running at UNSW, whilst meeting new people and finding your way around campus.

 


Arc @ UNSW Yellow Shirts

Arc @ UNSW Yellow Shirt volunteers organise the dynamic social festival that is O  Week. The Yellow Shirts will be on hand during O Week to guide you on your quest by answering questions and offering insider tips to university life and will be conducting tours to equip you with the campus knowledge you need in order to get off to the best possible start at UNSW.

Yellow Shirts are volunteers from all faculties and many backgrounds who are trained on all aspects of the campus, services and student life — but they’re also a friendly face on campus to chat with and to help you meet other students! During the Semester 2 O Week, Yellow Shirts are on hand to answer any questions you may have, and will be running campus tours.


International Students

New international students should also attend Step Up, a tailored orientation program addressing the specific needs of international students.

Step Up will take place prior to oreintation week, from the 19 - 21 February, 2014.
