Not only is orientation a lot of fun, it helps you settle into life as a UOW Student.
Attend your faculty orientation session
At these sessions you'll find out information about your course, some handy hints for your first year and meet your classmates.
Pick up your Student ID
If you haven't already, pick up your student ID card from one of the tents at the festival. Check out the map in the O-Guide (which you'll get at your faculty orientation session) to find your pick-up location.
You'll be able to pick up your card any time between 11:30am-2:30pm. If there is a line, grab some free food and come back later.
Remember you'll need to bring a form of photo ID (Passport or Driver Licence) to collect your student card.
Visit the Orientation Festival
After your session, check out the Orientation Festival where you'll be able to relax to some tunes, grab a free feed, meet Clubs & Societies and check out the services UOW has to offer.
Make sure you pack a big bag, there's a tonne of freebies.

When to come to your Faculty Session
