What is Orientation Week?
Your Orientation day (for your specific program) will be held during Orientation Week. It is a great way to meet new people, get used to your campus and its resources, find out who your classmates and instructors will be, and find out what you need to be doing to be successful from the first day of class. During Orientation week, we will be hosting lots of fun socials for you to attend, have fun and meet new people. Check out our socials page for more information.
What is my “Academic School”?
All programs are grouped into “schools”, for example, if you are taking Business Management, your school is The Business School. To find out your school name, please see the program listings.
What happens at Orientation?

I can't find my post-graduate program. When is my Orientation day?
If your program is a post-graduate certificate, your orientation is typically in your first day of class OR your schedule has yet to be posted. You can find your program schedule by visiting humber.ca/myhumber
Do I have to register ahead of time?
Your orientation schedule depends on your program. Registration is strongly recommended so we can ensure you're accounted for, for the best Orientation experience possible.
Can I bring a parent, family member or guest to Orientation?
Yes. Parents or family are welcome to attend a special one-hour Orientation session just for them so they can learn about the college and have all their questions answered. Please note that this is separate from your Orientation so you will not be spending the day together. Both you and your family members will be having too much fun to notice the other is not around. Information for parents and family members can be found here.
