Do you have questions? We Got You!

 

What is Orientation?

Orientation is designed to help you navigate your new academic journey. Before you come to campus, you can get information from our virtual Orientation events. Many programs will also host a Meet Your Faculty (MYF) session, where you can learn more about your program. Plus, you can join us in-person to explore the campus and meet other students.

 

What is Blackboard?

Blackboard is the Learning Management System (LMS) that Humber uses – basically, it's the platform to access your courses. On Blackboard, you’ll find detailed information about your course as well as information on learning materials, course readings, discussions, and more. Blackboard is also how most professors will host their communication, whether through announcements or through course messages. For more information on Blackboard, check out Open Learning Centre’s YouTube channel.

 

How do I log in to Blackboard?

To log in to Blackboard, visit learn.humber.ca and follow the steps below.

1) Sign in: username@humber.ca (this is your Humber username plus @humber.ca)

How do I attend my Meet Your Faculty session?

All students registered in a program holding a Meet Your Faculty session will receive an email with their session information. If you have not received such an email, please check your spam/junk folders, and ensure that you are checking the same email address that you indicated as your primary email address for all communication with the college.

You can also contact us with your name, program name, and N#, and we will respond to you via email.

 

What is a Faculty? Which Faculty is mine?

All programs at Humber are grouped into different faculties. For example, if you are taking Business Management, you're in the Faculty of Business. To find out your faculty please click here.

 

Do I have to register for Meet Your Faculty?

All incoming, full-time, registered students will receive an email from Humber College with the details of their program's Meet Your Faculty session. We ask that students register for their session in advance so that we know how many students will attend and can plan accordingly. Plus, if you register through the link provided in that email, you will be entered to win one of two $100 e-gift cards!

 

How will I know where to go on-campus?

We strongly recommend downloading the Campus Compass app – this will help you navigate Humber's North and Lakeshore campuses as well as the University of Guelph-Humber.

 

Is there information for family and friends?

Yes! Information for family and friends can be found here.

 

Is there a cost to attend Orientation?

No. Orientation is free and a great way to start your new academic journey.

 

Do I have to attend Orientation?

No. Orientation is not mandatory. However, we recommend attending your Meet Your Faculty session if your program is running one so that you have the chance to ask questions and can feel better prepared. Plus, our Welcome Events are a great way to learn more about Humber, connect with others, and make new friends.

 

My program isn't running a Meet Your Faculty session. What do I do?

Don't worry! Your professors will provide key information as part of your first class and on your Blackboard course, or via email.

 

What's the best way to meet people during Orientation?

We recommend joining our Welcome Events, where you can make new friends, meet other students, and have fun! In the Fall Term, we also suggest signing up for the First Year Experience (FYE) program so that you can be matched with an upper-year mentor and attend FYE events with other students throughout the semester.

 

I’m an upper-year Humber student interested in Orientation events. Can I participate?

Meet Your Faculty sessions are only available for first-year students. However, some Welcome Events are open to all students at Humber – be sure to check out the specific event details to learn more.

 

What should I know before coming on campus?

Please review the Return to Campus information before coming to campus. Until May 2nd, 2022, you are responsible for providing proof that you are either fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or that you have received an exemption from the college. You can also stay on top of any new updates here.
