What to Expect at Orientation

Orientation Our Way is a personalised Orientation experience that combines opportunities to tune-in, come-in, and drop-in.

Orientation TV (OTV) and Orientation Boost sessions will be delivered online in an engaging, informative format. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, answer polls, have your say, and chat with your fellow students and CQUniversity staff in real-time. We encourage you to ask questions as you are watching. No question is a silly question!

How to Prepare

Virtual events

To prepare for virtual events, ensure your area is functional, preferably at a desk with a comfortable chair. To get the most out of the experience you will need a laptop, computer, tablet or smartphone with an internet connection so you can access Zoom.

Other useful things to have on hand include your Student ID number, pens, highlighters, a notepad, water bottle, and snacks to keep you going. Keep these handy so you don’t have to miss anything! You may also like to explore the Orientation resources that are available including digital name tags and badges.


Orientation Connect events

Orientation Connect events provide an opportunity to meet and connect with fellow students, staff, and support services. Depending on your location, these sessions may include networking activities, games, campus tours, and market stalls. You do not need to bring anything with you.

If you will be attending an Orientation Connect event, please be reminded that CQUni is a smoke-free university. All staff, students and visitors to our campuses are asked to comply with the smoke-free policy by not smoking anywhere on university grounds.
