In-person Orientation to Campus Tours are designed to familiarize our incoming students with their new campus at Lakehead University! In these tours, incoming students are shown where all the buildings are, how to get to your classes, great study spots and locate our various student supports and much more! Our live, guided tours are hosted by our Orientation to Campus Tour Guides or Student Success Centre Student Assistants.
Thunder Bay campus: Orientation to Campus Tours will start at the Agora and will begin promptly at the starting time. There is a 20 person maximum for each tour. Each tour is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes in length.
Guided virtual Orientation to Campus tours are offered using the YouVisit software and done through a webinar format using Zoom and are designed for those students and their supporters who can’t come to the campus physically for a tour. Students are able to chat live using the chat function and ask questions as we virtually walk around campus.

Looking for some extra protection against COVID-19 this school year? The province’s GO-VAXX mobile vaccine bus will be rolling into campus this September.
The GO-VAXX bus will be set up on campus from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, September 10, and Sunday September 11. Students, faculty, staff, and community members will be able to receive a first, second, third or fourth dose of the vaccine. No appointment is required. Each bus operates as a fully functioning vaccine clinic with the necessary supplies and trained staff to provide assistance to people and ensure vaccines are administered safely. All COVID-19 safety precautions will be followed on board, including the required pre-vaccination screening and post-vaccination monitoring.
Anyone wishing to take advantage of the GO-VAXX bus to receive their vaccine is reminded to:
- Bring your health card. If you do not have a health card or your health card is expired, bring another form of government-issued photo identification such as a driver’s license, passport, status card or birth certificate.
- Eat and drink something before you arrive to prevent feeling faint or dizzy while being vaccinated.
- Dress for the weather in case there is a lineup.
