A Message from Principal Carol Chin

Welcome to Woodsworth College! We are a community comprising a large student body, a dedicated staff and faculty and more than 30,000 alumni.

We are here to help

The entire Woodsworth team is ready to help, support and encourage you to thrive and excel. Whether you are entering degree studies after high school graduation or have taken other paths to get here, we hope your journey will be a fulfilling experience.


There are a host of activities to get involved in, whether you are a commuter student or living in residence. Check out the Office of the Dean of Students, the Registrar's Office and the Academic Writing Centre. These are all great resources.  

The college has a long tradition of providing excellent student services and individualized attention. So, whether you are seeking help with academics, finances or health-related issues, there will always be someone who can help you.

Our global reach

Today’s students have opportunities and challenges that are different from past graduates: they live in an increasingly connected world and compete for jobs against people around the globe. Part of our mission at Woodsworth is to build global awareness and flexibility and provide you with outlets for international experience. Our Summer Abroad Program, a flagship international experience opportunity within the Faculty of Arts & Science, offers credit courses that can help you gain a global perspective. I’m proud that we offer classes on every continent except Antarctica -- maybe that’s next!


Woodsworth has always been welcoming to students from all backgrounds and communities. We will continue to provide a welcoming environment for all. Currently, we are responding to U of T’s Truth and Reconciliation reportWecheehetowin, and will be working toward increasing diversity in our faculty, as well as enhancing opportunities for Indigenous students.
