Graduate Student Orientation

All new graduate and professional school students are invited to attend the Graduate Student Orientation at the Bannatyne Campus on September 6, 2019.

This comprehensive orientation includes a welcome session, a campus tour, lunch, a resource fair, and workshops that provide information to:

  • ease your transition into graduate school
  • introduce you to campus services and involvement opportunities and
  • show you just how much the University of Manitoba has to offer.

The Graduate Student Orientation is not intended to take the place of your departmental orientation. If your school or department has concurrent orientation activities, you should attend those events.

The 2019 Graduate Student Orientation is proudly hosted by the Health Sciences Graduate Students' Association (HSGSA) and the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
