Orientation Week, or “Week Zero” as we call it, is our way of welcoming our future Lassondians into their new home for the next few years. Starting a new chapter in your life is hard, and we’re here to help ease your transition into university life. Orientation Week is by far one of the most unforgettable experiences in one’s university career, and is a great opportunity to make friends, bond with your new classmates, and make memories you will cherish and share throughout your time here. We’ve planned lots of fun activities, events, and even a few parties, all tailored towards making your first week here at Lassonde as fun and seamless as possible.



So what will you be doing exactly? Week Zero is packed with fun events, from a escape rooms and colour runs, to an awesome formal to close the week out. 

We will be releasing our schedule soon, with all the details on what’s happening this year, keep checking back to our twitter or facebook, or check out our schedule page.



Week Zero “Kits” are you ticket to all our events. The very first event is Kit Pickup, where you’ll come check in with us, pick up your new Lassonde gear and Week Zero t-shirt, and start meeting lots of new people! Kit purchases open on July 11th!

Commuter Rooms


Week Zero consists of some pretty long days, and we understand that it’s difficult for students to travel back and forth between campus, so we’ve set up commuter rooms for our attendees to stay in over night! 

You can sign up for Commuter Rooms when you’re buying your kit, make sure to look for the option that says you want to sleep over! If you are sleeping over, you’ll need to bring the following:

  • Sleeping bag + pillow
  • Air mattress is highly recommended
  • Change of clothes for the next day
  • Toiletries
  • Towel (shower access will be provided to ones who sleep over)
  • etc.
