Orientation Week

Hundreds of eager and excited first year students (and new to King’s students) are about to make King’s their new home! The Bridging Program for International students begins August 31, followed by Orientation Week September 4 - 10. O-Week will include some traditional favourites and a number of new academic initiatives. 

You need an O-Pass to gain access to all the events going on during Orientation Week. Most incoming students will not have to buy an Orientation Pass (O-Pass) because it is included in their tuition under “Orientation Fee”. Review O-Pass pick-up locations [PDF].
