If you are arriving late, it might be a good idea to request a UniMentor. A UniMentor is a current student from your school who will be able to show you around the campus and help you settle into life at UWA.

Visit the UniMentor Help Tent opposite the Guild Student centre during Week 1, this is where you can pick up important resources you may have missed out on during Orientation. The Help Tent provides help and support for students during the initial weeks of uni, with information about various student services, help with physical directions to venues and any other general questions.

You can also access the 'Your Orientation' organisation within the Learning Management System (LMS) to access all the recordings from Orientation.

If you missed the formal orientation activities, you should also get in touch with your Student Advising Office to get up to speed on any course-specific information.

The university also offers lots of exciting optional activities throughout the first six weeks of each semester as part of the UWA Connect program so be sure to check out the final page of the UniStart website and keep an eye on your student email for information about these activities and events.
