Orientation Week at Ryerson University is the first week for all new incoming students in every faculty and every program, living on or off campus. With over 100 events happening over 9 days, it’s your time to discover what our downtown Toronto campus has to offer. You will be introduced to Ryerson’s key resources, values and experiences that will help you build a strong foundation for the year to come. Interact with other new students, upper year students, and Ryerson’s faculty and staff as we welcome you to a community committed to your personal development, professional development and academic success.
