Residence Orientation

Welcome to the UTSC Residence Community! Our Residence Orientation program takes place before classes begin! Orientation is intended to make students feel welcomed to residence, provide information about resources and supports available, facilitate connections and friendships, and --most importantly --create opportunities for students to have FUN!! 

Check back to this page for information on Summer and Fall/ Winter Orientation!

Residence & Campus Events

Once you've settled into your residence room and bid farewell to your parents and family, join us for the winter Residence & Campus events. We are excited to be able to connect with you virtually, and we have some amazing programming planned. Check with your community Residence Advisor for upcoming community events!

During residence and campus events, you will get an opportunity to:

  • Engage in social activities online and develop your identity as a UTSC resident
  • Meet your residence assistant and floor mates and begin to form lasting friendships
