Student Experience Office


Your Experience Starts Here!

The Student Experience Office is your first stop when you arrive at Carleton University! Our role is to ensure new students make a successful transition to university life by preparing you to achieve your personal and academic goals. We continue to support you through your time at Carleton University by offering helpful services and programs to encourage student engagement.

Program Spotlight: Summer Orientation

Summer Orientation is a one-day program for new students and their parent(s) or guardian(s). Each session focuses on promoting student academic success and personal development. As the first step in a student’s transition to Carleton University, we strongly encourage all new incoming students and their parent(s) or guardian(s) to actively participate.

After attending summer orientation I felt more confident navigating the school and understanding what university was all about. The friendly faces of the orientation leaders and my fellow students really made me feel welcome into the Carleton community. Summer orientation stimulated my excitement and relaxed my nerves making me anxious to begin university here at Carleton!”
