These events, activities and campus tours will allow you to meet representatives from the University of Ottawa in person and learn more about us. We’re there to help you prepare your admission application, register for your courses, get ready for the start of classes, make changes to your program and, finally, receive your diploma.

Orientation and integration

Summer Orientation

Join us with your parents for a day on your campus. Discover how your faculty works, services and key campus locations. Meet students in your program and faculty in a small group setting and learn tips from second, third and fourth year students.

Summer Orientation includes presentations on services, university life and academics in your faculty; a visit to your faculty, residences and all around your campus; a presentation for parents; and social activities with fellow new students and guides. Order your student card online in advance and you will even receive it during orientation!

More information and registration will be available in late spring.

Regional mentor visits

The regional mentors are ready to help you with your transition from high school to the University of Ottawa. They're here to answer all of your questions and to make sure that you have a successful, memorable university experience.

From the end of July to mid-August, the regional mentoring team visits a number of Canadian cities to meet you and help you prepare for your arrival on campus. Mentors will tell you, from a student's perspective, what you need to know before, during and after you arrive on campus. They'll be happy to also respond to any questions you may have! 

Summer 2016 visits have now passed; next year's visits will be announced in June 2017. 



Convocation is a very special event that brings together graduates and members of the University of Ottawa community. For graduating students, it is a time to celebrate their accomplishments in front of family and friends. And for members of the University community, it is a time to celebrate the efforts of students they have supported during their studies at the University of Ottawa.

There are two convocations each academic year: one in October/November and one in June. To register and attend, visit the Convocation website.
