iBegin

Welcome to the University of Ontario Institute of Technology! Check back in the spring for more information about iBegin 2018, happening this summer!

iBegin is the first part of your orientation to our university. It is designed to promote your academic and personal success by providing you with insight about what it will be like to be a student here. At iBegin, you will have the opportunity to meet your fellow classmates, faculty and staff; learn strategies for attending university lectures; and discuss what might make the university experience unique for you.

We recognize that your family plays an important role in this transition. As a part of our iBegin schedule, we will have a Parent and Family Orientation that will provide them with an opportunity to learn about the student experience at our university and how they can best support you as you begin and progress through your university career.

Parents and families

Parents and families are key partners in supporting student success at our university, from the first year through to graduation. We encourage you to invite your support person(s) to join us at iBegin, where they will have the opportunity to learn more about the services, resources and programs available at the university, and learn about the student experience first-hand from our current staff and students.

If you have any questions, email askme@uoit.ca or call 905.721.8668 ext 5380.
