Welcome to SAIT! Orientation is your first taste of campus after being accepted. Now is your chance to explore the campus and connect with instructors and peers while getting comfortable with your surroundings before your studies begin.
Before you attend
ORNT 118 - Orientation
Orientation for new students beginning a full-time program will be held Aug. 28 - Sept. 1. Program-specific orientation is a one-day event where you'll have the chance to meet your instructors, take a tour and connect with your peers. Lunch will be provided to new students registered in ORNT 118.
Please visit Program Orientation Requirements to see if your program requires you to complete additional pre-orientation tasks prior to your first day.
In addition to your program orientation, international students are required to attend International Student Orientation on Monday, Aug. 28 at 1 pm in the Orpheus Theatre, Campus Centre. This session will be the first chance that international students have to connect with staff of the International Centre and fellow international students. They will be introduced to key resources on campus that are available to support them through their studies as well as receive important information regarding their status as an international student at SAIT.
Apprentices will attend their orientation on their first day of classes.
Information booths will be setup in the Irene Lewis Atrium where staff and volunteers will be available throughout lunch to answer any additional questions you may have. The following services will be participating in the information fair:
- Athletics & Recreation
- Student Awards
- Social Media
- Got Questions
