Parents & Family Orientation Day

Parent and Family Orientation will take place on Saturday, September 3, 2016. Details and RSVP information will be updated here.

Please consider joining us for the next Parents & Family Orientation and Move-in Day, in Fall 2016, to learn about the opportunities, services and resources York has to offer.

The event will welcome you to university by our senior administration and includes a student services information fair, a student play put on by our own Vanier College Productions (which showcases the first-year experience) as well as an optional session about financial aid.

Attendees also receive information about academic services, social activities, recreational activities, and facilities related to their student’s College, which will serve as their ‘home away from home’ while they are here at York.
