First Year Experience (FYE)

Make the most of your first year at the University of Guelph-Humber!

First-Year Experience logo

The First Year Experience (FYE) program eases your transition into university! Connect online with other new students in your program throughout the summer. Each FYE Group is led by an FYE Leader, a current student in your program who is excited to meet you and welcome you to the University! They’ll share important dates, what to expect in classes, and how to make friends – ask them anything!

Profiles of your FYE Leaders will be posted here in early July so you can put a face to a name.

FYE Groups

As a new UofGH student, you’re automatically enrolled in the FYE program. Check your Gryph Mail for your first email from Student Life, with an invitation to join your FYE Group on Microsoft Teams! (The first invite is also sent to your personal email, but we only do this once! Get into the habit of checking your Gryph Mail throughout the summer so you don’t miss any important info.)

Follow these step-by-step instructions to join your FYE Group. Once you log in, you’ll see your FYE Group listed under Teams, with the name of your FYE Leader in the title.

Contact Student Life at if you have trouble accessing your FYE group.

Kick Start

As part of the FYE program, join us for Kick Start, a series of live webinars designed to support your transition from secondary to post-secondary education. There are sessions for your parents and supporters too! Topics include course selection, financial services, and wellness supports.

More information about the Kick Start webinar series will be posted in Summer 2021.

Orientation Week 2021

FYE Leaders are excited to join you at Orientation Week 2021, from August 30 to September 3. More information will be posted on the Orientation website in Summer 2021.
