Current Graduate Students

Administrative Functions

Most administrative functions for Anthropology graduate students are handled by the Department of Anthropology at the St. George campus located in downtown Toronto, except for Teaching Assistant employment.

Teaching Assistant Employment

Job postings for UTM Anthropology Teaching Assistant positions are available via the Teaching Assistant - Unit 1 page under the Jobs section of our website.

UTM Affiliation and Amenities

Graduate students are not automatically affiliated with UTM if they have UTM faculty supervisors.

View the Perks of Graduate Student Affiliation (PDF) for benefits of affiliating with UTM.

If you are interested in requesting affiliation with UTM, please visit the Campus Affiliation page hosted by the Office of the Vice-Dean, Graduate, UTM.

UTM Anthropology Graduate Carrels

UTM Anthropology has a limited number of carrel desks available for UTM-affiliated Anthropology graduate students to use. The desks are located on the 4th floor of the Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex. Graduate desk assignment is not automatic, so please contact the Departmental Assistant at if you would like more information about the process. Please note that desks are typically shared due to the limited number available, so you should not expect to have an unshared desk.

Please remember that all Teaching Assistant work and meetings with students must take place in assigned TA office spaces and not in the carrel area. 

UTM Graduate Lounge

UTM-affiliated graduate students can use the UTM Association of Graduate Students (UTMAGS) Lounge, located in Room DV 2068B. Visit the UTMAGS Graduate Lounge web page for more information.
