Session 2 is fast approaching and there’s a lot to do, so here is your checklist for on campus and online orientation!

To-do now:

Welcome to CSU! Have you checked these things off your list yet?

On-campus students:

Check out the essentials you’ll need to live on-campus and don’t forget to take a look at your campus map to find out where your classes and facilities are.

Once you arrive on campus, you will have three main orientation activities:

  1. Academic sessions: Meet your Course Director or other academic staff, make sure you’re up-to-speed with all your course requirements and check that you’ve got everything you need for your first classes.
  2. Services and support sessions: Find out about the support team available to help you through your studies. There are dedicated teams to help you boost your study skills, manage your finances, look after your health and more.
  3. Uni life sessions: Get involved in our social program to make some of your first Uni friends!
