Your First Year Experience

Moving from high school to university or transferring from another program or institution can be a big transition, but we’re here to help.

We have a team of students, staff, and faculty here to welcome you to our KINmunity and introduce you to a variety of experiences and resources to help support your academic and personal development and make the most out of your time in UBC KIN.

Your First Step: Orientations


Jump Start

Get on campus early and join us for a multi-day orientation designed to introduce you to the University, your faculty, and new friends. Whether you’re an international or domestic student, whether you plan to live on or off campus, Jump Start is for you!


Imagine UBC Day

The first day of classes is replaced with Imagine UBC. The entire UBC community comes together to welcome new students and celebrate the beginning of the new academic year.
You’ll have a chance to make friends and meet our Director, professors, and senior students from the School.
