Welcome back everyone! Hope you’re all having a great start to the year If you’ve been in the Koffler Student Centre recently, you’ll notice the new TCard office as well as the lovely ASKme staff member at the booth providing directions. Feel free to talk to the ASKme staff, and check out this post for answers to frequently asked questions.
Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a fantastic break
The TCard Services office is now open for business, and it looks great! Check out the pictures below, and be sure to pop by 214 College Street to get your TCard. The office is located directly inside the St. George entrance to the Koffler Student Centre beside Second Cup. Make sure you bring the required documents to obtain your card!
As the holidays quickly approach, renovations have picked up steam. The T-Card office is now in the final stages of renovations and will be set to open on January 2, 2017 in the new space at the Koffler Student Centre (pics coming in the new year!).
Already in the FITA program?
Meetings with your FITA Counsellor will continue to take place in the FITA offices in the lower level. Enter through the main floor sliding doors of the Student Life space, and proceed down the temporary walkway to the lower level waiting area.
Looking for FITA for the first time?
There will be no front desk to assist students with way finding during the renovation. If you have questions or concerns related to FITA, please contact the FITA Program Coordinator at 416-978-4525, email@example.com, or in the new office location, room 167 on the lower level of the Student Life area. To get there, enter through the Student Life main floor sliding doors, and proceed down the temporary walkway to the lower level. Follow the hallway to the left all the way to the end past the washrooms. For more information about the program itself, check the FITA website at uoft.me/FITA.
With the Career Centre/Academic Success Centre renovations underway, our student printer is no longer available. But have no fear – U of T has a number of student printers in close proximity! Check out this list compiled by our guest contributor Makasha Armstrong.
Move day felt like a massive project of its own, but that was just the beginning! A couple weeks ago, we saw the scaffolding go up (also known as the “egress”) and demolition promptly began over the weekend.
While the Career and Academic Success Centre services have moved to room 203, many of our staff are still working in their regular spaces during the renovation. In order to access the the offices, an egress was built so we could safely enter and exit the space.
On January 2, 2017, TCard Services will be permanently located on the first floor of the Koffler Student Services Centre, in what will be the newly-renovated area that houses the Academic Success Centre, Career Centre and Housing Services.
Staff and faculty will still be able to get their TCards from the Robarts Reader Registration desk, but students will be required to go to the Koffler site to get their cards.
In the new space, students will find the resources they need to achieve their personal and academic goals. Bringing the TCard office to this location streamlines Student Life’s services and allows students to visit one location for a variety of programs and support.
Renovations are now underway and will be completed early next year. Faculty and staff who have questions about TCard Services are encouraged to contact Arlene Clement, Director Housing & TCard Services, at arlene.clement.utoronto.ca, or Ursula Shail, Manager of TCard Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
