Huron provides international students with the opportunity to move into residence one week prior to the arrival of all first year students. During this week, we have planned activities to help you adjust to life in London, Ontario and the academic environment of a Canadian university. This time is also used to get some of the day-to-day tasks out of the way (health insurance, shopping for the things you need, learning the bus routes, etc.). The final day of the International and Exchange Student Orientation is also the first day of Huron and Western’s first year orientation. You can read about orientation here - http://www.oweek.ca/ or learn more through Huron’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/huronatwestern
