Faculty & School Welcomes

Faculty and school welcomes are important events to attend as they give you vital study and course information, and introduce you to the University's administrative policies and procedures.

You will have the opportunity to meet fellow students and academic staff, and find out about student associations related to your study. If you are studying with more than one faculty, we encourage you to attend all welcomes relevant to your degree. Select your faculty to see the details of your orientation activities:

Faculty Student group

If you are studying with Health Sciences, the Conservatorium of Music or Sydney College of the Arts, check your faculty website whether your faculty will be running orientation activities on that campus, and not at Camperdown/Darlington, as detailed below. However, you are welcome and encouraged to join in with any of the re-Orientation activities and entertainment on the main campus.
