Orientation at Griffith

It's important to get the right start at Griffith, and find out all you need to know. That's why we've created myOrientation. Once you've received your offer of admission you'll be able to access myOrientation and be taken on a personalised journey through your first weeks of University.

The O-Week Planner is part of myOrientation and that's where you'll find information on sessions, skills workshops, social events and tours, and meet staff and students, while exploring your campus. As well as making new mates you can find out what to expect as a Griffith student.

What's on

Orientation Week is also a great opportunity to:

  • meet new people
  • get comfortable with the facilities and locations of classes
  • get your student ID card
  • make sure you are correctly enrolled
  • generally have a great time.

School-based orientation

Your school orientation is compulsory, and included in your O-Week Planner. Each school will have their own mandatory sessions (which we’ve added for you), and additional events to ensure you are as ready as you can be to start your studies.

Library orientation

Griffith Library runs Orientation sessions that'll teach you all you need to know about the Library and IT at Griffith. On Market Days, we’ll help you set up your Wi-Fi, navigate the Griffith Uni App and access workshops to get you uni-ready. There’s also a range of great study resources available online.
