Welcome week


We’re so lucky to have you! This year we’re more excited than ever to offer you some safe in-person orientation activities along with our virtual ones. Welcome Week is designed to make to give you a chance to explore your university and to feel at home on campus before classes begin. You’re a Gee-Gee now, jump in with both feet and check out what we’ve got planned to kick off your university experience!

Campus activities

Between movie nights, varsity games, multiple carnival days, and free food trucks, there’s something for everyone.

Check our calendar for all the activities.

And remember to come to the campus store and get yourself some uOttawa merch to fit right in on campus and at events!

All in-person activities require participants to complete the uOttawa Covid-19 Daily Assessment prior to coming to campus and to follow the Ottawa Public Health guidelines by wearing a mask, being physically distanced and washing hands frequently. The University of Ottawa will now require Covid-19 vaccination for all students who intend to access the uOttawa campus on or after September 7, 2021 (1st dose) and October 15, 2021 (2nd dose).
