Orientation and Information Sessions

To help you adjust to your new life as a student at l’Université Laval, the Bureau de la vie étudiante (Student Life Office) invites all new international students to an orientation and information session a few days before the beginning of their first semester. During these sessions, which last about an hour, you get essential information about your new university, how it operates, and the various services it provides.

English sessions will be available online, in person, and concurrently (in person and streamed online at the same time).

You can choose any of the dates according to your availability. Click on the link of the session you are interested in to register. Select a billet and click on Proceed to Checkout. You will then be asked to fill out a form with your contact information. It is important to use your Laval University email address (@ulaval.ca) to complete the registration.

A confirmation email will be sent to your ULaval email address with instructions on how to attend (either with a Zoom link or the room number depending on whether you choose an online or in-person session). Spots are limited for in-person sessions.

To join the virtual or concurrently session online, you must activate your Laval University Zoom account. For technical assistance, please contact your faculty service center.

The August 24 session will be held in the Charles-De Koninck building in room DKN-1270. The September 1 session will be held in room DKN-1239.
