Welcome to Western University!
We are excited to have you join us for Orientation Week (also known as “OWeek”), taking place from Monday, September 7th to Sunday, September 13th, 2020.
Western sets the OWeek standard across Canada and, this year, we fully plan to raise that bar even higher. Get ready for exclusive virtual experiences, campus-wide events (online and in-person), and everything you need to make your year a success.
Check out our block schedule for a sneak peek at what's in store!
It's a 7-day welcome to a new school, new friends, and a new life. Near or far, virtual or in-person, our OWeek will be accessible to all students via the OPass! Don’t miss out on once-in-a-lifetime memories made possible by Canada’s best Orientation.
If you have questions, please reach out to Orientation Staff at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you soon, Mustangs.

Members of Arkells welcome students to the start of the 2020 semester.
