Orientation at all campuses

Nau mai, haere mai! Welcome! Talofa lava!
Malo e lelei! 

Coming to Laidlaw College, you are entering into a community shaped by the Gospel. At Laidlaw, we learn together so that we are better equipped to renew God’s world. Orientation Week is our opportunity to welcome you; to introduce you to the Laidlaw whānau; and to help orient you to the journey ahead. During the week you will meet your lecturers and classmates, receive support and study advice about the semester ahead, and connect with the community. Our anticipation is growing as we prepare for you to join us in 2023!

Timetables will be available closer to the time.

We can’t wait to see you!
The Laidlaw College Orientation Team
