It's all about putting U into UCOL.

We want to make sure your first week at UCOL is a great experience. Join us for official welcomes, academic and career sessions, food and fun, and cool night events in Palmerston North, Whanganui and Wairarapa. Attending Orientation Week (O-Week) will help you meet other students in your course, find your way around campus and prepare you for study.

Dates: February - March

UCOL ready
Take a look at our handy UCOL Student Guidebook that will ensure you've got everything sorted before you study. It's things like getting your ID card, picking up a car parking sticker, and essential information about your campus.
