First Year students (Freshers) are by tradition given an "acclimatization" period of normally one week which is referred to as the "Orientation Week". The Freshers report on Campus one week earlier than the Continuing Students and during this week they are introduced to the key facilities in the University as well as other important aspects of Life at the University. A programme of Activities is always issued out and is expected to be strictly followed.

During the week, arrangements will normally be made to enable the Freshers meet and be addressed by such Key Officers as: the Academic Registrar, University Secretary, Dean of Students, Director of the University Hospital, University Counsellor, Principal Games Tutor, Bursar, University Security Officer and the Deans/Directors of Faculties/ Institutes/Schools of the University. This is in addition to Wardens and student leaders who welcome the Students.

Arrangements will also normally be made to enable the Freshers acquaint themselves with such key facilities at the University like: the University Library, the University Hospital, Games and Recreation Facilities. The Freshers are also expected to take advantage of the week to survey and acquaint themselves with the general compass lay out.
