Welcome to U of T Mississauga

UTM – Mississauga’s campus of Canada’s top university – works to make our community one of the world’s great catalysts of creativity, innovation, and positive social change.

We’re grounded in the strength of our students, who are drawn to this community from every Canadian province and 130 countries around the globe. They come to make positive change for themselves and others, and to learn new knowledge alongside the leaders who discovered it. And they go on to lead what’s next. Our students thrive as North America’s most employable public university graduates, giving a special boost of talent to Canada’s largest life science, business, arts, and technology sectors – right here in our neighborhood.

UTM embraces the power of our place, driving discovery globally from one of the world’s most diverse city regions. We pursue solutions to chronic disease in Canada’s largest community hospital system and develop rapid diagnostics for better health in North America’s greenest life science labs. Our researchers extend human capabilities with made-in-Canada robotics and redefine what it means to be human in first-in-Canada programs in culture and communication. This community is powering entrepreneurship, leading a climate positive future, and designing cities for everyone to flourish. 

Our ambition comes together on a community-oriented campus, which stretches through the beauty of the Credit Valley Forest down to the banks of an ancient river, the Missinnihe. Here, on the traditional land of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, we seek to walk the path to reconciliation with Indigenous people and model right relations as a step towards our fundamental goal: to help lead the way to a better future from Mississauga.

It’s a great privilege for me to be part of this community and to welcome everyone who wants to learn more about what we do.
