Volunteer with UVic Orientation

Two volunteers for UVic Orientation leading a group of new students

Get involved with UVic Orientation and help welcome new students to the University of Victoria!

As an orientation volunteer, you'll connect new students to the UVic community by welcoming, inspiring and supporting them. Through our programs and activities, new students are introduced to our culture and values, get to know campus resources and services, meet other incoming students, and begin to learn their way around campus.

Orientation leaders play a critical role by acting as university ambassadors and peer mentors, providing new students with a positive introduction to UVic, and contributing to a welcoming and supportive atmosphere.

Beyond the opportunity to help welcome new students, being an orientation leader has numerous benefits:

  • Develop new skills
  • Learn more about UVic and your campus community
  • Create new social connections
  • Receive a free orientation t-shirt, training and professional development, and a reference
  • Eligible for the co-curricular record
