Orientation Week at Bond

Bringing Orientation to you

From the second you accept your offer and enrol in your classes, you are officially part of the Bond community. We can’t wait to bring Orientation to you and take you on a whirlwind tour of our University before you get stuck into your studies.

Orientation for our May 2023 semester (232) commences on Tuesday, 9 May, 2023. 

Orientation is a series of events and activities designed to introduce you to Bond, your academics, peers, and key support staff and services, and serves as an opportunity to start building your new network. On this page, you will find lots of resources to help you settle in and start the semester strong, as well as a schedule of events for Orientation Week when finalised. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and join your cohort's Facebook group. 

Prior to your arrival at Bond, you must upload your photo to the CaptureME portal. Your photo will be used for identification purposes on Bond's Student Learning Management System (iLearn), and for your student ID card. 

Once your photo has been approved through CaptureME, you can collect your Student ID card from Don's Tavern (BLD10_1_08) between 9:00am and 4:00pm AEST during Orientation Week.

If you are residing on campus, you will receive your Student ID card upon check in to Student Housing.
