WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation (NSO) is for all new students registered at uLethbridge; while it is optional, you'll be sad if you don't attend!
At NSO, you'll learn what is expected of you as first year student, meet with faculty and staff, become familiar with campus resources and, of course, meet other students new to uLethbridge!
Does it cost anything to attend New Student Orientation (NSO)?
No! Students and their family can attend NSO free of charge. We only ask you come ready for fun and informative sessions that will prepare students for their future endeavors.
Is New Student Orientation mandatory?
New Student Orientation is not mandatory at the University of Lethbridge; however, we highly recommend joining us on both days to gather important information from various service areas and faculties throughout uLethbridge.
What is the schedule for NSO? You can find the two-day schedule here!
Why are there more than one session at a time? How do I know where to go? There are multiple sessions because we know that every student is unique and their orientation experience will also be unique! Choose the session that you are most interested in or that you have the most questions about. You will have to opportunity to participate in TWO of the sessions that run at the same time because we run all sessions twice. On day one, family members are welcome to participate in sessions without their student as well.
Can I bring someone to the event?
Yes! We encourage students to bring a family member or two with them as we will have a family-specific feature session on Monday, September 3 and information sessions that they may find valuable. However, please note that there is no family-specific programming on Tuesday, September 4, as the focus is for students.
Are there orientations for graduate students? International students? Transfer students? FNMI students?
While each respective area may offer their own version of orientation, we have worked hard with each area to offer programming for all of our new students within NSO on top of their own specific programming. Orientation activities that are specific to certain groups of students will be communicated via FNMI student services, the School of Graduate Studies and the International Centre.
Where do I park at uLethbridge?
Free parking will be available on Sept. 3 and 4 ONLY in Lot E. There will be signage guiding you to the correct lot.
What’s happening at lunch time?
Lunch will be provided for everyone at the event. If you have any dietary restrictions please let us know when you register for the event.
Will services on campus be open for NSO?
On Monday, September 3 there will be limited services open, but many service staff will be available at sessions and throughout the day to answer questions. On Tuesday, September 4, it will be business as usual!
