Services and Support

Student Services

Academic Success is one of three departments that comprise the Student Success Centre. Academic Success professional staff are dedicated to helping you reach your highest learning potential. Every student is capable of achieving academic excellence, but not all learning takes place in the classroom, and not everyone learns in the same way. We understand that your life is more complex than your academic responsibilities, so we look at the whole picture and take an individualized approach to supporting you. Connect with us and learn more about how we can help you.

First Nations House provides culturally relevant services to Indigenous students in support of academic success, personal growth and leadership development. We also offer learning opportunities for all students to engage with Indigenous communities within the University of Toronto and beyond.

Accessibility Services' mission is to provide students with a network of resources to succeed at the University of Toronto, both inside and outside the classroom. We strive to create a safe and comfortable community for students where they can navigate their disability and related barriers, facilitate peer support and interactions, and provide various academic and social opportunities.

We uphold the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and the University of Toronto's Statement of Commitment to Persons with Disabilities.

The Family Care Office provides confidential guidance, resources, referrals, educational programming and advocacy for the University of Toronto community and their families. We raise awareness of family care issues central to the achievement of education and employment equity at the University of Toronto.

Health & Wellness offers University of Toronto students a wide range of medical and mental health services to help support them in achieving their personal and academic best.

Beliefs are a big part of who we are and how we learn, and while U of T is a secular institution, we respect everyone’s right to worship. The Multi-Faith Centre supports the spiritual well-being of everyone on campus and provides opportunities for people to learn from each other while exploring questions of meaning, purpose and identity. Our facilities and programs accommodate a wide variety of spiritual and faith-based practices and encourage interfaith dialogue and spiritual development as part of the learning experience for all students. 

The Sexual & Gender Diversity Office (SGDO) develops partnerships to build supportive learning and working communities at the University of Toronto by working towards equity and challenging discrimination. The Office provides innovative education, programming, resources and advocacy on sexual and gender diversity for students, staff and faculty across the University’s three campuses.
