Are orientation events mandatory?
No, but we encourage everyone to participate in all events they are comfortable with - or step out of your comfort zone and try something new. However, if you don’t want to participate in an activity, that’s fine too!
Where will I stay during Orientation?
Residence students will be moving into their rooms the day before Orientation starts and will be living there throughout Orientation and the rest of the school year.
Unfortunately, the residence add-on is unavailable at the moment due to unforeseeable circumstances of the Woodsworth Residence. Students who already purchased, your spot is secured.
For questions about the residence add-on, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the residence add-on?
Woodsworth College residence provides accommodations for commuting students if needed. Commuters have the option of requesting to stay overnight in one of the Woodsworth Residence common rooms for the duration of Orientation Week for an additional price. You would move in Monday morning and move out Wednesday.
Do I need to bring anything to orientation?
Other than any allergy medication, or things you bring with you everywhere, there is nothing specific you need to bring to Orientation. On the first day of Orientation during the registration process students will receive an Orientation kit, which will contain useful tools to ensure a successful Orientation. Please visit our schedule to find out more information about specific events and their respective requirements.
Does Woodsworth provide accessibility accommodations?
