Orientation Week 20 - 24 Feb

Congratulations on your decision to study at Monash. Orientation Week is the official start of semester and we encourage everyone to attend.

Orientation Week will help you:

  • learn more about your campus, facilities and services on offer
  • get to know your faculty and prepare for study
  • form connections, make friends and involved in campus life
  • develop a sense of belonging to the Monash community

During Orientation, compulsory activities are hosted by your faculty or school and there are optional sessions regarding student life and support. We also have fun activities including Welcome events and Student Association run activities. For further information and to create a personalised Orientation plan, see the Orientation website.

If you can’t attend Orientation

Orientation is important but if there are circumstances beyond your control that prevent you from attending, we have some tips on how you can prepare for life at Monash.

International students, please check your Monash email for information on repeat orientation sessions.
