Orientation -- Mississauga


Make a successful academic, social, and personal transition to your university experience with UTM’s orientation and transition programs. Review checklists, learn about deadlines, and find out about supports and resources available to a new student.



Summer Options

Start early with summer events, such as UTM Head Start, a series of interactive, discipline-specific sessions led by faculty, librarians, and staff; the Summer Transition Program for Students with Learning Disabilities; New Student Advising, and Eagle2Eagle, where upper-year students answer questions a new student may have.

Launching on May 21, 2019, a number of options are available to new students who require additional support:

  • Live Chat: Ask any of our summer support leader questions while on the New Student Website with the Live Chat option, available 10 am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday (excluding Canadian holidays).
  • Email: Email eagle2eagle.utm@utoronto.ca if have you any questions about the pre-arrival processes. A student support leader will happily respond within 48 hours.
