Orientation Week at Ryerson University

In response to COVID-19, all #RoadtoRyerson events will be hosted online via various online platforms. To view all of the events we have planned this year, please visit

Ryerson’s Orientation Week takes place the week before classes begin and gives incoming students the chance to connect with other new students, get familiar with their academic program, and get to know their way around campus. Our Orientation Week is designed to meet the needs of all new students. This year we’ll be hosting Orientation Week over 2 weeks. Get Excited because Orientation takes place this year from August 24th to September 7th!

Find the full schedule event-by-event on ConnectRU, your campus community events portal. Or head over to our "Events" page to get a preview!

We invited two incoming students to meet for the first time and talk about transitioning to university. What would you have talked about?
