Welcome Day

Welcome Day is for all new undergraduate students starting at SFU this spring.
Join us virtually on Friday, January 7 at 10:00 am (PT)! 

It will be an opportunity to:

  • meet classmates, staff and others who will be a part of your new community; 
  • learn about the SFU community;
  • find out more about your program of study, and more! 

For all new SFU undergraduate students, registration will not be required. Your personalized link to access the event will be sent to you via email in the week leading up to Welcome Day, as well as on the day of Welcome Day! Check your SFU email  for more information about the event and how to attend.

Wayfinding Campus Tours

These student-led tours will help you find your way to the places and resources you need on campus. Our goal is to help you feel welcomed and comfortable in the SFU environment so that you can confidently tap into the resources you need to thrive and succeed.

Our Wayfinding Champions will provide a guided walking tour where you will learn about student engagement opportunities and events, on-campus services, study areas, and more. Tours are 1.5 hours long at the Burnaby or Surrey campus, and accessible tours are available upon request.
