New Student Orientation

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

A team of student leaders and UB administrators host the ever-popular Parents’ Evening and Welcome Ceremony. New students meet faculty who share detailed information about programmes of study and advise them of courses to take. During NSO, students are able to reserve and pay for their courses and get their UB ID card.

  • Fall semester NSO is held 2 weeks before the first day of classes.
  • Spring semester NSO is held 1 week before the first day of classes.
