Your first year experience starts here!

All incoming first-year UTSC students are automatically enrolled in the First Year Experience Program!

That means that you get access to a dedicated First Year Peer Advisor for the full year! Plus you're invited to come hang out with your Peer Advisors at the First Year Café! First-year students also receive the opportunity to participate in First Year Workshops & Socials!

First Year Peer Advisor

First Year Peer Advisors are upper-year students that help first-year students in their transition to university.

First Year Cafe

The First Year Café is a drop-in space for first-year students to chat with Peer Advisors, meet fellow first-year students, or just to hang out or study.

First Year Socials

As a part of the First Year Experience Program, all first-year students are invited to participate in monthly socials & events to meet fellow first-year students.

First Year Workshops

First-year students also have the opportunity to participate in weekly workshops related to academic, personal, and life skills development in order to help first-year students with their transition to university.
