The College system
Within the Faculty of Arts and Science, all students also belong to one of seven colleges. This provides the advantages of a small college experience, combined with membership in the nation’s top research university. Colleges become a home base for students in a large and diverse university — a place for them to go for personal, financial and academic counselling, social activities, and for residence.
Whether students commute to the campus or live in residence, their college is like a familiar neighbourhood, bringing them together with people they may know for a lifetime. No matter which college students belong to, they have access to all arts, science, commerce/management courses on the campus and receive a U of T degree.
