What is Online Orientation?
Online Orientation is designed to provide you with a space to learn how to navigate your new academic journey. You will also have the opportunity to Meet Your Faculty, partake in many fun and free events with our Welcome Month, where you can interact with other Humber students and gain an understanding of how Humber is working to support you!
What is my “Faculty”?
All programs are grouped into “faculty”, 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 Online Orientation ahead of time?

If your program is running a Meet Your Faculty session you will receive an email from Humber College with all the details for your virtual session happening between Tuesday, August 3rd - Wednesday, August 4th. Your Meet Your Faculty session was created to have a space where you can get all your questions answered from your faculty, meet other classmates and feel ready for your first day at Humber!
