Summer calendar & checklist
September might feel a long way off, but there are many ways to set yourself up for success right now, and Student Life is here with you every step of the way.
U of T is planning for a safe return to in-person activities for fall 2022, including student services, programs, and events. Situations can change, so be sure to check Student Life Covid-19 Updates and Vice Provost, Students Covid-19 Information for regular updates. Whatever comes next, we’re here to support you and to adapt our programs and services.
Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for all the latest Student Life info and be sure to download the Student Life app for quick access to resources. You can also read up on student life at U of T with our Life @ U of T bloggers.
This calendar (PDF) (accessible version) will give you a great sense of programs and events that are available, but there are so many more! Be sure to check out Hart House, student unions (UTSU and APUS), Sport & Rec and your college or faculty because they’ll have lots of stuff going on, too.
Use the calendar to check out orientation events and workshops to help you prepare for life as a university student. The checklist is full of tips and info to help you start strong this fall. Most summer events and workshops will be delivered online, but some may be delivered in person.
If you see an event in this calendar that interests you, go to the online version for details. Registration for most events occurs on the Career & Co-curricular Learning Network (CLNx). You’ll be spending a lot of time on this tool, so set up your account now. Check out the Using the CLNx playlist for videos showing you how to use CLNx.
Dates and times are subject to change, so please visit the orientation calendar online for the most current info. All times are in Eastern Daylight Time.
These events and programs are for all incoming students, but some are targeted for specific audiences. Look for programs designed for:
- International students
- Black African Caribbean, Latin American, Southeast Asian students or first generation students (students who are the first in their family to attend postsecondary school in Canada)
- Indigenous students
- Students with a disability
- LGBTQ2S+ students
- Mature or transfer students
- Students with family responsibilities
