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: August 21 to 25 (Mon–Fri)
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.

Dates: August 21 to September 1
Times: 9am–4pm

If you are in need of any kitchen items, small furniture, stationery, 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.

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation is specially 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.

International Student Orientation: this is a half-day orientation with information and resources just for new students coming from outside North America.

Date: Monday, August 28
Time: 10am–1:30pm (lunch included)

New Student Orientation: this is a three-day orientation for both new international and North American students.

Dates: Tuesday, August 29–Thursday, August 31
Time: 9am–3pm each day (there will also be optional activities in the afternoon/evening each day)

Please note:

  • International students are expected to attend both orientation events (Aug 28 & Aug 29–31).
  • Lunch will be provided on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at a cost of $5.00 per person.
