-          Active Consent Workshop 

-          General student support information

-          Virtual Campus Tour

*Please ensure that you are logged into your Zoom Account using the e-mail address you provided to the CAO prior to beginning your Orientation session*

On Campus Orientation sample (2 Hours)

The Virtual First year Online Orientation will be followed by an on-campus orientation for first years over the two days 20th and 21st September. This will be an Informal flexible Open day where 1st year students will get the opportunity to come onto campus to find out about what services/ supports are available or get a campus tour etc. In conjunction with WITSU, WIT Novas and WIT Student services, information stands will be set up in Atrium and at entry points. Please ensure to complete your online registration prior to attending on campus activities or before classes start on September 22nd. Details of this were sent to you by [email protected] 


Extensive planning has gone into developing an engaging online Orientation for our incoming students this year during very challenging times as you can appreciate. Below is a sample outline of whats will be covered during the Online Orientation. 

We can't wait to meet you at StartWIT Orientation! Don't be afraid to ask us questions, we are here to help you make a smooth transition to college and we are looking forward to getting to know you during your time in WIT.

Different courses deliver their orientation in different ways. It is extremely important that you attend. 

In addition to Orientation for first years, WIT is offering an on campus orientation for last year’s first year students (Now second years), many of whom have not been on campus during this academic year. This will be an Informal Open day theme where 2nd year students will get the opportunity to come onto campus before classes start back to find out about what services/ supports are available or get a campus tour etc.

(Note: You must be registered prior to attending campus to engage with ReStart Orientation or attending classes on September 8th).
