Student life wouldn’t be complete without Orientation Week, more commonly known as O'Week!

Every year Toi Ohomai | Te Pūkenga welcomes more than 10,000 new and returning students across our campuses. We like to start the year off with a bang as we hold our annual orientation events.

O’Week is an opportunity to get acquainted with Toi Ohomai | Te Pūkenga, learn about the student services that are available, get to know classmates and have some epic fun.

During O'Week, students are also officially welcomed onto campus with a pōhiri (welcome ceremony).

Each year O’Week has a different theme, but it always includes live music, free food, stallholders, competitions, fun activities, and fiercely contested challenges.

Keep an eye on our Events page for dates.
