Plan your orientation

Make friends, share experiences and discover the new world of campus life! Orientation Week at U of T is mostly decentralized, which means that each college and faculty offers its own orientation events.


There are also U of T-wide events including programs for mature students, international students, LGBTQ+ students, students with a disability and more. All of these events will be fun, introduce you to new friends and prepare you for what to expect as a U of T student!
