Welcome and Orientation


We have a Welcome and Orientation programme which is designed to provide you with essential and useful information to help you settle into University life. This is a great way to make new friends and meet the staff who will support you whilst you are studying at Teesside. You will get to know the campus and learn more about studying here and living in Middlesbrough. We want to ensure that you are familiar with the practical aspects of your life as well as getting used to the campus.

We expect you to join us at the Welcome and Orientation event so that you can get the most out of student life here. This event forms a valuable part of your student experience here at Teesside, so it is important to make sure that you make arrangements to arrive in time for it. The Welcome and Orientation event for September 2020 will take place Saturday 19 September - Sunday 20 September 2020.

PLEASE NOTE - The orientation process is different to the enrolment process.
