Orientation Opportunities Available to YOU!

Prepare yourself for your university journey by attending Orientation programs at UTM! 

A wide variety of orientation initiatives are offered at UTM between June and September to support your transition to university. Learn more about which orientation opportunities are the right fit for you! Research shows that students who participate in orientation are more academically successful and more likely to persist to graduation.

We will be updating Orientation information as these events are finalized. 

Please Note: All programs are registration based and therefore you are required to register for each program you are interested in attending. The only exception is Residence Orientation. Check-back in July for registration information!

Pre-Orientation Programming 

There are a number of resources available for all new students to prepare for the start of their first year at UTM. The initiatives available to new students in 2019 are listed below.

New Eagle Newsletter

Throughout July and August, all new students will receive a weekly newsletter which highlights important information, news, and deadlines to help assist with the start of the academic year. The newsletter is an integral part of the summer learning experience and the themes align with many of our other pre-arrival programs and provides timely information for students.

Weekly Webinars

In addition to our newsletter, a weekly webinar (posted on Facebook Live) will be available to students. The webinar highlights the themes within the newsletter, including additional ways to interact with student leaders. The weekly webinars begin in July and will be an excellent opportunity to learn more about UTM and to ask questions.

Eagles Nest - UTM Engage App

UTM is proud to announce the launch of a new and innovative app which will enhance a students’ social life on campus. The Eagles Nest will be an excellent opportunity to interact with other new students, learn more about life on campus, and ask questions. The app will be monitored regularly by upper-year leaders.

More information coming about the app and login information in May, 2019.

Live Chat

Available from June to August, the Live Chat function will be available from 10 am to 4 pm (Eastern Standard Time) from Monday to Friday (excluding holidays) on this page.

Speak to an Upper Year Student

Between June and August you can sign-up to receive a call from an Upper-Year student in your stream (Business, Science, Social Sciences and Humanities).  They can answer any questions you have about what to expect when you come to UTM because they have been there!

Calls are placed using Skype, Facebook Messenger, or Facetime. You can choose the best way to connect with you within the form.

With four dates running in 2019, students are given an opportunity to call an upper-year student at UTM on specific days during the summer. With one date in June, two in July, and an additional date available in August, new students can call from 10 am to 7 pm on any one of these days.

The research around success in post-secondary education indicates that students who are involved in campus opportunities and invest time in building communities have better grades and are more likely to succeed. UTM has a number of offices and departments in place to not only help you get invovevd but to support you along your journey as a student at UTM.
