Welcome to Orientation!

Orientation Week - or 'O Week' - for Session 2 happened on campus from Monday 25 - Friday 29 July 2016. If you missed out, you can find recordings for some sessions below. We are now planning for 2017 so save the dates: Monday 20 - Friday 24 February, 2017.

Orientation is the start of your journey at Macquarie, your introduction to life with us, and a showcase of our fun, vibrant and friendly community. We welcome all or new and returning students to join us during this week (check your student email address in early February for your invitation!). We'll celebrate the start of a new session, explore what's on offer for the session, and help you to embrace campus life before classes begin the following week.

Did you miss O Week? Some sessions were recorded and are available through Echo360 (like your lectures). You can email us at orientation@mq.edu.au to collect a welcome pack if you missed out, and you can still select a Macquarie University Mentor, a great source of information and advice during your first session.
