Information for Students

While being a student can be rewarding, there will be times when it is challenging, stressful, and overwhelming. Many of you are coming from high schools where the expectations are very different from those at the University of Toronto. Many of you are juggling your studies with competing responsibilities, such as a job, or family commitments. 

There are many resources available to you to help you make the most of your time at U of T. Whether you want to develop or enhance your study skills, need advice on your academic program, or just need to talk to someone, there are people and places to assist you. As a good general rule, your Professors or TAs are a good place to start for information.
