Fall orientation

Get things done!

Orientation is your day to complete your checklist, so you can focus on classes once they begin.

Get your FANCard, student planner and Frosh Kit

  • London Campus – J Gym 3
  • London Downtown Campus – Downtown Campus Store
  • Regional Campuses – will be covered during orientation

Get your course materials

  • Pro-tip 1:  buy online and skip the line
  • Pro-tip 2: if you’re around the weekend before orientation (August 31 and September 1), visit the Campus Store – it's often still quiet

Find your classes      

  • Staff in red or white Fanshawe shirts will be all around to help you out.


Complete your fee payment

  • This is due by the 10 day of term (please note depending on your choice of payment method, it could take up to five business days to process, so leave yourself enough time).
