Week 1 Essentials

If you missed Orientation...

Plan how you're getting to campus

What you need for your first day

  • A notebook and pen or laptop to help you take notes in lectures and class
  • An understanding of your course outline, which you can find in your course on Blackboard (access via myUON)
  • Textbooks, readings or other resources that are prescribed by your lecturer in the course outline - however, don't buy these unless your lecturer tells you that you must
  • Food and water (or money to buy a snack) to keep you going throughout the day. All UON campuses have water stations for you to refill your water bottle
  • Your Student ID card
