A large gathering of students congregate outside the University of Manitoba Student Union University Centre on Welcome Day.

We recommend you attend Welcome Day even if you’ve completed UM Essentials online and attended What’s Next? and Making the Grade! It will help you to be fully prepared for your first year of university.

Welcome Day schedule

Welcome Day 2020 is Tuesday, Sept. 8, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and beyond.

Join us for:

  • Information sessions offered by the First Year Centre
  • Information sessions from your faculty
  • Resource Fair -- with booths from a variety of University support units
  • Entertainment, games, and other fun activities on the Quad

In the afternoon only, you can also pick up your Student ID card and your Active Living Centre membership.

How to register for Welcome Day

You will receive an email invitation to Welcome Day in July or August, sent to the email address you used when you applied to attend University.
