Social Orientation

Make new friends, become comfortable at York and make the most of your university experience. Join the fun at Social Orientation, also known as Frosh Week (held in the fall) or Frost Week (held in the winter), offered by your College Council.

During this often week-long event, you’ll have the option to participate in a wide range of social activities including sports challenges, a carnival night, live performances and fun field trips.

You’ll discover there's no better way to meet new people and familiarize yourself with the campus than to attend Frosh or Frost week.

Discover your College to know which Frosh Week is for you.
