New Arrival Support Program

Depending on when your flight arrives, you may be in Canada for many days before International Student Orientation takes place. During this time, you may not know anyone but will have lots of questions and need assistance to settle in. That is why International Student Services is pleased to bring you the New Arrival Support Program (NASP). 

About the program

  • What is the New Arrival Support Program?

    When you register for the New Arrival Support Program (NASP), you are registering to meet two student volunteers who will help with your adjustment to UOIT and Oshawa.

    During the NASP you will: 

    • Meet peers who can support you.
    • Receive a campus tour.
    • Receive a tour of the Durham Region public transit system.
    • Learn how to navigate in Oshawa.
    • Get your campus ID (if offices are open on the date you select).
    • Get assistance setting up banking.
    • Get assistance setting up phone plans.
    • Shop for your immediate needs.
    • Get your Social Insurance Number (SIN) (if offices are open).

    Please note: You should register for both the New Arrival Support Program and the International Student Orientation as they are different programs.
