When do I need to arrive in Sydney?

If you can, aim to arrive in Sydney at least a couple of weeks before semester starts, so you have more time to settle in, meet people (and do some sightseeing!) before classes begin. 

We have a busy program of Orientation events to help you settle into university life. These events are your chance to have all your questions answered through a series of welcome events, workshops and information sessions before classes begin.

Most of these events are in Orientation Week (26 February - 2 March 2018). There are also some events for students that are new to Sydney, that occur before or after Orientation Week. Check the full program of events to plan your schedule and find out when you need to be in Sydney.
