Your introduction to university life
Don't miss out on the events, information sessions and activities we have planned to help you adjust to life as a university student.
The University of Sydney Welcome Program is one of the best in Australia, bringing together all students, new and continuing, to celebrate the start of semester.
Our Welcome Program takes place in the weeks leading up to each semester and includes both in-person and online events for students. Our Welcome events, activities and workshops are run by faculties and schools, Student Life, the University of Sydney Union (USU), the Library, clubs and societies, and more.
From faculty and school events, peer-mentoring sessions and workshops to club and society stalls, freebies and live music performances, there's something for everyone at Welcome.
In Semester 1 2023, our Welcome Program will take place between 6 and 24 February, with the majority of events taking place the week before semester begins.
Log in to the Welcome Planner with your Unikey to see the full Welcome Program, register for events and plan your schedule.
The majority of events and activities in our Welcome Program take place on our main Camperdown/Darlington campus.
There are plenty of ways to get to campus, from cycling to using public transport. For how to get to and around campus, visit our Getting to campus webpage.
