The Faculty of Science would like to welcome you to the University of Auckland. We look forward to seeing you at the Semester One Undergraduate Orientation held on the City Campus on Wednesday 21 February.

This year’s Orientation programme includes a number of welcome activities, specialised information sessions and opportunities to get to know each other. All undergraduate students are welcome to attend these sessions, whether new to the University or returning after changing programmes.   

Wednesday 21 February

Undergraduate Orientation

Students are asked to assemble at the John Hood Plaza by 8.30am where you will be shown where to join others in your chosen major. At 8.45am you will be led as a group into the Waipapa Marae for your welcome by John Hosking, Dean, Faculty of Science.

Students are then shown to the Faculty of Science welcome session where our inspiring teaching staff will present tips on learning and time management.

Throughout Orientation day, you will have the opportunity to:

  • complete the compulsory DELNA Screening
  • be taken on a tour of the City Campus with your UniGuide
  • take a break to purchase lunch from our wide range of food providers on campus (or bring a packed lunch to enjoy)
  • attend the Science Expo, where you'll meet staff and students from your faculty, browse the departments, join a club and get to know some of your classmates
  • attend your departmental welcome session - a detailed schedule of these sessions will be available in the Science Centre foyer
