Your orientation is all about helping you get familiar with RMIT processes, your program, and everything else that life at RMIT has to offer! 

Orientation at RMIT

Orientation Week (O Week) happens the week before your classes start. It's your chance to explore everything life at uni has to offer – both inside the classroom and out!

During orientation, you’ll get important information about your program and meet your teachers, but it's also the perfect time to explore campus, meet new friends and make memories at fun social events and activities.

The key parts of orientation

To help you settle into RMIT life, make sure you attend each of the three key elements of orientation.

1. Complete How2RMIT

How2RMIT helps new students to get set up and organised for RMIT life. You’ll learn about timetabling, fees and loans, making friends, finding your way around, support services, and much more.

2. Attend your program induction

Academic program induction sessions are where you'll learn about your program structure and requirements, meet academic staff and classmates, and more.

3. Go to some events & activities

Check out your campus, meet other students, score free food and get involved in RMIT life at events and activities, including O Week.
