When do I pick up my in-person Orientation Kit?
All registered participants of New College Orientation will receive a free physical Orientation Kit that includes a New College shirt and some awesome merchandise. More information on pick-up sessions will be announced at the end of August 2021.
In-person Orientation Kits can be picked up at the following New College building. Spadina station is the closest TTC station to New College. From this station, you take the 510 Spadina Streetcar and get off at Willcocks Street. New College is right across the street from there!

Tips and Tricks
- Stay connected with your group members and leaders – feel free to get contact information from each other to stay in the loop during Orientation.
- Step outside of your comfort zone!
- Take breaks whenever you’re tired. Online exhaustion is real and we have spaced out our programming as much as possible to give you room to breathe. Most of our events are also recorded and posted on Quercus after they occur, which means you can always watch them at a later time!
- Make the most out of Orientation! Attend as many sessions as you can as they are very informative and gives you tips and tricks on how to succeed.
