New Student Orientation

We are delighted to welcome new students and their spouses to Vancouver with a thorough introduction to the Regent community. In addition to New Student Orientation programming, Regent offers a few services before Orientation starts, including The Welcome Desk and Household Giveaway.

See below for more information on everything, and RSVP using the button at the bottom of this page.

The Welcome Desk

The Welcome Desk is available on campus to assist new students in Vancouver. The Welcome Desk provides practical in-person help and information before Orientation begins. It will be located in the atrium on the main floor of Regent College.

Dates: Monday, August 22 to Friday, August 26
Time: 9 am–12 pm

A member of the New Student Orientation team will greet you and help with any questions you might have about getting your UBC card or UPass, health insurance, banking, or the orientation program.

Household Giveaway

Every year, staff, faculty, friends, and alumni of Regent College give away good quality household items as a way to bless incoming students who are starting their time in Vancouver.

If you are in need of any kitchen items, small furniture, stationary, or items for children, you are welcome to take whatever you need. Everything is free! The Household Giveaway will be located in Room 14 on the lower level of the College.

Dates: August 22 to September 2
Times: 9am–4pm

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation is intentionally designed to help you make a smooth and successful transition into the life of the Regent College community. Together, we'll spend some time in worship and get to know each other. We'll introduce you to the history, mission, and values of Regent, and offer practical information for personal and academic success as you begin your studies. You'll meet faculty and connect with new and returning students.

Students often form their most important friendships at Regent during Orientation, so please join us if you can—even if you are a local student! Spouses are invited to join us too.

Dates: Tuesday, August 30–Thursday, September 1
Time: 9 am–3 pm
Please note: There will be optional activities in the afternoon/evening each day.

We are offering orientation in person and online, with the hope that as many students as possible can attend. If you're studying on campus and are able to attend in person, we strongly encourage you to do so.

Lunch will be provided for you each day at a cost of $5.00 per person.
