Orientation occurs every year the week prior to the start of classes. This is typically a time that students arrive to the university, register for classes, explore London, socialise with their new classmates and more. However, due to the current situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), ensuring the welfare of our students and staff is our absolute priority. Therefore, the university felt it was in the staff and students’ best interest to prepare for a virtual orientation for the start of Fall 2020.

Even though it will be virtual, the university will deliver a thorough, engaging and accessible introduction to the university, giving you plenty of opportunity to interact with staff and students. Welcome to the Richmond community!
