Orientation is a free program of activities to help you get ready to study as a new ECU student.
Participating in Orientation will help you familiarise yourself with your campus, our support services and facilities, as well as getting important information about your chosen course. If your orientation is on-campus, you might also meet your new classmates!
Welcome from our Vice-Chancellor
When is Orientation?
Orientation, sometimes called 'O Week' starts one week before the commencement of lectures.
We have O Week at the start of Semesters 1 and 2, and for Summer School in November, because many of our courses can be started in different teaching periods.
You can check the start dates on our Important dates page.

Semester 1 and 2 Orientation events
At the start of Semesters 1 and 2, there's a program of events for O Week. Go to the Booking and changing activities page, then work through the activities and make your bookings. You'll get a confirmation email for each successful booking.
Make the most of O Week. Register for as many activities as you can. Check our program and book events that will help you personally, like a Maths refresher, as well as the essential ones, like Course Inductions.
Some Orientation activities will be run on-campus with small groups of students during the first few weeks of semester. You can register for these sessions via the Orientation booking page.
