Bringing Orientation to you

Welcome to Bond

You may not be on campus yet, but you are now officially part of the Bond community. We can’t wait to bring Orientation to you – wherever you are in the world. 

Orientation is a series of events and activities to introduce you to Bond, your academics, classmates and key support staff. On this page, you will also find lots of resources to help you settle in and start the semester strong, as well as a schedule of events. You are also invited you to join the 213 Bondies Facebook group, so you can start to connect with your fellow classmates before the semester begins.

Whether you are studying on campus or remotely, 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.

If you are studying remotely, you can collect your ID card when you are able to arrive on campus, you will not need it beforehand.

If you are living on campus, attending on-campus classes and/or require access to on-campus facilities (e.g. library, Multimedia Learning Centre, Sports Centre), you will require a student ID card.  Once your photo has been approved through CaptureME, you can collect your Student ID card from Student Assist in the main library (BLD01_2_53) on Monday - Friday between 8.30am and 5pm AEST during Orientation Week.

Essential information

Welcome to Bond! Starting at a new university presents lots of unique challenges, from how to get from A to B, to getting in the swing of study and campus life. We want to help - here's everything you need to know. 

Learn more about...

At Bond, we refer to each semester with a three-digit number. This semester is 213. To work out the semester number, take the last two digits of the year (e.g. 2021 - '21') and the number of the semester (we're in semester 3, so use '3'). The following semester will be the first semester of 2022, so it will be 221, and the second semester of that year will be 222. Your first lesson as a Bondy, sorted!
