Making travel arrangements

  • Know when mandatory orientation is by looking at our orientation website.
  • Know when the move-in day is if you are living in residence or off-campus accommodations.
    • Request an early move-in day so you can make the mandatory orientation events!
  • Be aware of the holiday in September called Labour Day where the university, banks and most businesses will be closed.
