Orientation Week

Emmanuel College 2020 Orientation Week begins on Saturday 15 February. Many O Week activities are organised by The University of Queensland, however, the main purpose of this week is to welcome new Collegians, inform them about the College and university life, and prepare them for the coming academic year. Students are required to attend the sessions detailed in the O Week program. The Emmanuel College Students’ Club (ECSC) social and community events are optional.

If you have any questions regarding checking in or O Week, please contact reception as we are more than happy to assist you.

We look forward to welcoming you to Emmanuel College.
