Before New Student Orientation
Please note that we offer a few services before Orientation starts:
The Welcome Centre
The Welcome Desk is there to help you with any practical information before Orientation begins. It will be located in the Atrium on the main floor of Regent College and be staffed from 9 am to 1 pm, on Thursday, January 2, Friday, January 3 and Monday, January 6, 2020. There will be a member of the New Student Orientation team there to meet you and help you with any questions you might have about getting your UBC card or UPass, healthcare, banking, or the orientation program.
Gifts for New Students
Every year staff, faculty, friends and exiting students of Regent College give away good quality household items as a way to bless incoming students as they begin their time in Vancouver. Everything is free!
If you are in need of any kitchen items, small furniture, stationary or items for children, you are welcome to take whatever you need. Gifts for New Students will be located in Room 14 and available from Thursday, January 2 - Friday, January 10, 2020.
New Student Orientation ProgramOur New Student Orientation program is intentionally designed to help you make a smooth and successful transition into the life of the Regent College community. Students find Orientation very beneficial in gaining opportunities for worship; an introduction to the history, mission and values of Regent and practical information for personal and academic success as they begin their studies. It is also a valuable time to meet the faculty and connect with other students. Indeed, students often form their most important friendships at Regent during Orientation. Please plan on attending (even if you are local). Spouses are also invited to attend and there will be a simple childcare program offered for those with young children.
Lunch during Orientation
Lunch will be provided for you each day at a cost of $5.00 per person (children aged 12 and under can eat for free).
Childcare during the Orientation Program
Childcare is provided during the Orientation program. Please be sure to RSVP no later than December 20, 2019 to ensure that we have a place for your children.
