Homeroom is an initiative developed primarily for new undergraduate students that provides a space for students to connect with other students. Through peer-to-peer facilitated virtual and in-person experiences you will meet and bond with other new Concordia students and learn how to navigate the university experience together. In weekly Homerooms (known as PODS) led by upper-year students, you’ll discuss a wide array of must-know topics that will help ease the transition to Concordia all while meeting new people and allowing you to co-develop new skills that will propel you through your first year of university and beyond. Homeroom is offered by the Dean of Students Office.

Distinct Pods registration

Homeroom is offering three distinct pods that will serve specific groups of students.
