Cultivate your curiosity, explore your passions, and create your own community through one or more of the 1,000+ different clubs and student-run organizations across our three campuses. You’ll find a club for almost every pursuit — from beekeeping to breakdancing, magic to mah-jong, Quidditch to space robots. Some clubs focus on cultural or spiritual ties, while others, such as departmental student societies, focus on academic interests. Meet fellow enthusiasts and like-minded colleagues. And, if you can’t find something that excites you, start a group of your own. Check out the Student Organization Portal for complete clubs listings.
Community and Culture
University of Toronto students are both academically accomplished and culturally diverse. With three campuses that leading researchers and scholars from across the world call home, U of T is a true global village. You’ll find many opportunities to engage with this diversity, both on and off campus.
Discover a rich array of opinions, backgrounds, and experiences by taking part in clubs, peer mentoring, or casual chatter. Reach out to communities all across the Greater Toronto Area through volunteer, work, and co-op placements. Share your expertise by mentoring high-school students, developing educational workshops, or launching a neighbourhood campaign. The University has extensive ties with local community groups, and can help you merge your academic studies with community engagement.
Life at U of T is eclectic. You’ll find hundreds of academic options alongside a rich panoply of social, cultural, recreational, and wellness initiatives.
Each campus has a team dedicated to providing students with the supports, opportunities, and resources they’ll need to attain their full potential. Learn about Student Life and Student Affairs at U of T Mississauga, U of T St. George and U of T Scarborough.

Join a poetry group, try your hand at producing music, or audition for your spot with the Hart House Orchestra.
With the many art galleries and theatres that call our three campuses home, there’s always something to savour after class lets out. Enjoy student-run productions at U of T Mississauga’s Theatre Erindale or MiST Theatre, U of T Scarborough’s Leigha Lee Browne Theatre, and U of T St. George’s Hart House Theatre or Faculty of Music.
