Orientation week

MIT Orientation 2017

Our O-Week Orientation and welcome helps you get to know what student life is all about. This includes finding your way around campus, learning what student support services are available to you, meeting other new students and of course, having some fun.

Orientation runs from 9th January to 3rd March. Orientation events are happening all over MIT at different MIT sites, depending on what you study.

Events include lunchtime events at our MIT Ōtara and MIT Manukau campuses from 13th Feb to 3rd March. You’ll be able to find our MIT Student Support S2Go Hotspots where you can meet and talk to other students and find out about our services. You can find the hotspots in the quad area outside G Block, MIT Otara South Campus; the quad area outside NP Block, MIT Otara North Campus; and inside the Atrium at MIT Manukau. 

We also have music and entertainment lined up and brought to you by MIT Student Support. Join our Facebook page and go in the draw to win some great prizes and stay up to date with what's happening.
