First Year Experience (FYE) Program

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

All new students participate in our First Year Experience (FYE) program, which helps you get the most out of your transition into university life by building community and learning to access campus services and resources. You’ll be placed into an FYE group during the summer with other new students in your academic program. These groups are led by FYE Leaders (upper-year students), who provide information about campus resources, support services, important dates, and on-campus events through email and Facebook groups.

Our FYE Leaders can answer your questions, connect you to your peers, and help you feel comfortable at the University. They’ll lead you through Orientation and will be available for support and guidance throughout your first year at UofGH.

Email if you have any questions about First Year Experience.
