How to get the most out of Orientation

Uni starts with YOU! It’s almost time to start your uni adventure with Orientation! 

With Orientation just around the corner, now is the time to start planning! Our Orientation Planner will help you create your own customised Orientation plan.

Our Orientation Planner shows you what’s on at your campus, including social events and campus tours, as well as workshops and events that are specific to your area of study. 

Attending Orientation will help you get set up before classes start. It’s your first chance to meet your teachers, find out about your course, meet other students, sort out any admin issues and have your questions answered.

Immerse yourself in the culture of La Trobe University, learn more about academic support services and enjoy free food, music and giveaways.

Check out our key events and see what’s on at Orientation!
