Undergraduate orientation

Orientation week, or O-week, is the best time to get familiar with our campus and get ready to start your life as a Murdoch student.


Orientation is held at the beginning of each semester. You’ll meet new people, join social groups and clubs, check out facilities including our on-campus gym, grab food from an array of food trucks and take part in events, music and activities all around the campus.

During O-week, you can:

  • finalise your enrolment and sign up for your classes
  • go to course advice sessions for your study area
  • take a tour of campus
  • sign up for a student card
  • join the Guild
  • buy a parking permit or sign up for a public transport concession card
  • register with your Overseas Student Heath Cover provider or set up a bank account if you’re an international student.

In addition to the general events, we offer a range of tailored orientation sessions for each discipline. If you’re not sure which orientation session to attend, click on the name of the session below (e.g. Arts) and find your course under the list of majors within that discipline, or contact a Student Advisor.

Make sure to check the dates and RSVP for your orientation session, then download the guide below to plan your day.
