Connect, learn, thrive

September might feel a long way off, but there are lots of ways to set yourself up for success right now. And Student Life is here with you every step of the way! We’ll connect you to people and resources, help you learn to reach your potential, and thrive at U of T.

This site will give you a great sense of programs and events that are available from Student Life, but there are so many more! Be sure to check out Hart House, student unions (UTSU and APUS), Sport & Rec and your college or faculty because they'll have lots of stuff going on, too.
