O-Week (Orientation Week) is a comprehensive week of activities designed to welcome Freshers (first time students) to IH. It helps them get to know their way around, meet other Freshers, current residents and staff.
This all happens through a series of ice-breaker activities, games, inter college competitions plus on and off-campus excursions. It’s a full week where you’ll burn off nervous energy, discover some hidden talents, laugh and settle into your new home.
International House is the only residential college on the UQ Campus that runs O-Week for Semester 1 and Semester 2 for incoming students. IH students starting mid-year don’t miss out on an orientation or the opportunity to make friends though fun shared experiences.
International House has been running O-Week for decades and knows how to build a program of most benefit to new students while also being safe, well supported and respectful of all.
There’s not much you need to do to prepare for O-Week, other than come along and give things a go!
