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.
Move-in Day (Residence Only): Sunday, August 27, 2017
All Incoming Students: Orientation Week runs from Monday, August 28 to Monday, September 4, 2017 (Labour Day)
*All events of Ryerson’s Central Orientation are free to incoming Ryerson students. The only exception are those we run with local groups/non-profits where we ask for a small donation (typically about $3.00 or a non-perishable food item).
Various programming runs from 12:00 noon to 11PM. You can create your schedule to best fit your interests!
Orientation activities take place across a variety of on-campus locations. Details of specific locations will be released with the full events schedule.
