We have all your post-Orientation answers! (Summer 2019)

Our Summer 2019 Orientation was so much fun! We hope you got to know your new campus a bit better, picked up some great tips for the year ahead, and even met a few new friends. But now that Orientation is over, you may be asking yourself, “What’s next?”

Well, don’t worry! Here are some helpful answers to your most frequently asked questions. Note: This information is specific to the Summer (May) 2019 intake. 

When do classes begin?

All classes begin Monday, May 6, 2019. Familiarize yourself with your timetable now (Student Portal > Timetable). If you have registered in a lab, check your Student Portal for the start date of your lab.

If you schedule bank appointments, etc. or have questions and want to speak with an ICM staff, you must do this outside of class time.

Not sure where to find your classroom? Join a campus tour or check the location of your classes on a campus map so you’re not late on your first day. You can find the building and room number for each of your classes on your timetable.

How do I get my ICM student ID card?

  1. Log into your Student Portal > Student Resources > Student Profile and write down the UNI NO. Important: Your UNI NO (U of M student number) will be seven digits. This is different from your ICM student ID which consists of letters and numbers.
  2.  If don’t see a UNI NO yet, this may be because you enroled late. Please check back later. As soon as we receive your number from the U of M, we’ll upload it into the system for you.
  3. Bring your passport, study permit, and UNI NO to the ID Centre. The pop-up ID Centre will be located in  112 Sundown, UMSU University Centre from April 30 until May 3 (or 400 UMSU University Centre starting May 6) during scheduled hours: umanitoba.ca/student/ records/pii/photo_id.html

How do I buy a bus pass?

Students who have their ICM student ID card can purchase their peggo card and post-secondary bus pass from Answers on the bottom floor of UMSU University Center.

Don’t have your ID card yet? No problem! You can buy a peggo card from Answers, 7-Eleven, or Shoppers Drug Mart and load e-cash or a weekly bus pass onto your card until you receive your ICM student ID card. E-cash is great for students living on campus, too.

How do I activate my ICM Student Portal email address?

Now that you’re here on campus, it’s time to activate your ICM Student Portal email address though your Student Portal by clicking Inbox. Check our page 15/16 of the Student Portal Tutorial for tips like how to forward your ICM student emails to your personal email account.

Students must only email ICM staff and instructors from this secure student email address. Check this email address and the Student Portal daily for important updates and information!

What about connecting to wifi on campus?

While there’s a free guest network, you’ll need an UMNetID to access the secure wifi network on campus. Instructions to claim your UMNetID have been emailed to your ICM Student Portal email address soon. Follow the instructions in the email to activate your UMNetID.

Do you have more events scheduled?

Of course! We have an entire month of Month of Welcome events planned for our new students – campus tours, free food, movie night, skills workshops and more! Check the sheet handed out at Orientation for an overview. All event details will be posted on your Student Portal. We hope to see you there!
