UB welcomes new students and their families and provides for a successful transition to university life through a week of exciting and information-packed activities. Our New Student Orientation (NSO) programme is designed to familiarise students with our campuses and introduce them to the academic and co-curricular life of the institution, as well as the resources available for their success.

During the week, a team of student leaders and UB administrators hosts the ever-popular Parents’ Evening, Welcome Ceremony, Business Village, Organizations Showcase, Campus and Island Tours and Student Success Seminars, Block Party and Student Organisation Showcase. New students meet with academic deans and faculty who share detailed information about programmes of study and advise them of courses to take. During the week, students are able to reserve and pay for their courses and get their UB ID card. Also, as a part of the fall semester NSO activities for Family Island students attending classes at the Oakes Field Campus and Grosvenor Close Centre a tour of new Providence is included.
