You may notice students dressed in orange around campus. These students are known as Peer Networkers and will be roaming around UTS throughout Orientation & Preparation Week to help you get acquainted with your new campus. The Peer Network is made up of current international and local UTS students, so if you have any questions during Orientation don’t be shy, they’re a friendly bunch and are here to help you!
