Welcome to SAIT!

Orientation week for Fall 2021 is Aug. 30 to Sept. 3

SAIT is much more than programs and buildings — it's your community. Explore what that community has to offer this week with a series of online info sessions, program orientation and an afternoon on campus!

Meet other SAIT students and chat to staff about all the supports available to students. Plus, find out just how many ways there are to get involved in student life.

👉 Each program will host a program-specific orientation. The date, time and location details can be found in your schedule on mySAIT. If it's online, you'll receive access details from your academic chair or program coordinator. 

Before coming to campus, watch these videos to get acquainted with the health and safety mandates and resources at SAIT.
