Welcome to Student Success

On March 20, the Student Success Centre will be opening its doors to the U of T community. Located in the Koffler Student Services Centre at 214 College Street, the space will be home to Academic Success, Housing and Career Exploration & Education (formerly known as the Career Centre).

This newly-renovated space features four spacious rooms for group programming, booths for advising sessions and state-of-the-art technology that will help students achieve career, academic and personal success.

“We’re thrilled to be welcoming students to our new environment,” says Heather Kelly, Senior Director of Student Success. “The Student Success Centre is a place where students can find the resources they need to thrive at U of T and beyond. We have an incredible team that is looking forward to serving the University community in this fantastic new space.”

The team at the Student Success Centre encourages staff and faculty to visit the new space and inform students of the services available within it. Please remind students that Academic Success and Career Exploration & Education will be returning to their former environment, but Housing is relocating from its space on the second floor, down to the first floor of Koffler.

Demolition begins

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.

TCard Services moving to Koffler Centre

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 ursula.shail@utoronto.ca.
