Study Hubs are scheduled times for you to set and meet your studying goals. Quiet, welcoming virtual spaces allow you to complete readings, work on assignments and prepare for tests and exams.
All undergraduate and graduate students
How The Program Works
Study Hubs are mostly online, but we have some in-person Hubs now too! Find all upcoming sessions on the Study Hubs calendar. We hope you’ll join us!
At the beginning of each session, a student peer mentor will help you set an achievable study goal for the next two hours. No matter what you have to do, setting SMART goals can be highly effective. Our mentors have useful academic resources on hand in case you need them.
Attendance can count toward CCR recognition once you attend at least six sessions and write a brief personal reflection. Reflections are collected through the CLNx program tracker: when you log in to CLNx, go to the “Programs I’m registered in” tab and click into the Study Hubs program for the term. Within the Events task, click “add this” for six or more of the Hubs you attended in order to access the second task module that allows you to share your reflection.
Lead a Study Hub
If you would like to become a peer mentor with the Study Hubs, we are offering online training sessions. Find the schedule on the Academic Success Events & Workshops calendar on CLNx. You will be able to facilitate sessions on your own schedule, so you can do your own work and support other students at the same time!
If there are no training sessions on the calendar that work for your schedule, please contact Jonathan Vandor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you’ve run eleven or more Study Hubs and written a brief personal reflection on your experience, you’ll be eligible for Co-Curricular Record (CCR) recognition. These reflections are collected though an online form that will be sent by email after your eleventh Hub.
Register for each session on the Study Hubs calendar to get the specific Zoom URLs or to save your spot in the in-person options.
Share your name or email with the hosting peer mentor to work towards earning your community contributor credit with the CCR.
What Students Are SayingRATE
During Study Hubs, I had the opportunity to meet a variety of undergraduate, masters and doctoral degree students... We often share interesting stories at the beginning of each session: it reminds me to always maintain a healthy balance between academic work and life.
Judy, BASc student in Electrical Engineering
The SMART goals during each session were very useful to plan out work for the allotted 2 hours. The Study Hub facilitators were excellent in guiding us to share our goals with each other: the Hubs were a great way to start my journey at U of T.
Allison, M.Ed student in Developmental Psychology & Education
Study Hubs have helped me to work on myself by helping me cultivate and foster life-long skills such as time management and organization: they have helped me in furthering my understandings of my capabilities.
Dania, Bachelor’s student in Sociology
The Hubs provide a structured opportunity to do things and a unique community during these trying times... I've also learned how important it is to reflect on your own energy levels. If people participate in the Hubs, they can find a community that provides structure, motivation, accountability and, in turn, the energy to persist and work hard.
