Starting Point

Starting Point, previously known as the Blueprint program, is a build-your-own-experience program that introduces you to all the U of T has to offer and will set you up for success during your first year. Each week you will receive an email with helpful information including what is happening across campus, and you’ll choose which workshops and activities interest you most and fit your schedule.

While the program runs September – April, the summer is a great time to register so you will receive timely information to help you start strong.

Register for Starting Point to start receiving the Ultra-Helpful Weekly Email!
