Orientation and Transition

Students on Bridge

Orientation and Transition Programs at UTM provide programs and services designed to assist students with a successful transition into, through, and out of the university. This website will be your source of information for orientation and transition initiatives across Student Affairs & Services at UTM.

Orientation programs run prior to the start of classes each year. These programs are designed to prepare students during the summer for the upcoming school year. These programs include Residence OrientationWelcome Day, and Welcome Week for all new students at UTM.

Transition programs support students during the school year at key transition points in their academic career. These include the transition into university for new and first year students. Learn more about our First Year Experience Program (utmFYE).

Here at the University of Toronto Mississauga we want you get a solid start to your university career. Orientation activities are designed to help you connect with the wide range of services, programs and most importantly, the people who will become an important part of your time at UTM. A number of departments, offices, student organizations and other groups come together to bring you a wide range of Orientation activities -- all with the goal of making you feel welcome and at home at the university.

Most of the programs and activities at UTM are free of charge, and some require you to register for them specifically -- but this site will help you to keep it all sorted and ensure that you get connected with the orientation programs that are the best fit for you! We've highlighted orientation events coordinated by Student Affairs on these pages, but check out #NEW2UTM for programs run by other areas of UTM.
