Join us for the Woodsworth College Welcome Day on June 22! Meet representatives from the Office of the Dean of Students and the Office of the Registrar as well as upper-year students. You’ll learn about how to prepare for university studies, what to expect in first year, campus supports and more. We’ll also be running tours of campus and residence dorms. The sign-in desk will open at 9:30 am. Welcome Day activities will run from 10:00 am - 12:30 pm and optional campus tours will begin at 1:00 pm. Registration link is below.

Advising Workshops, Q&A sessions and Virtual Welcome Event

Academic advisors and other staff from the Office of the Registrar will be holding a series of virtual Q&A sessions and orientation workshops throughout the spring and summer to help you prepare for the fall (note: the July 11 Course Selection Workshop will be held in-person.) We are also running a virtual Welcome Event on June 27 from 10:00 - 11:30 am where you can learn about summer transition activities, hear about current students’ experiences and get tips on maintaining wellness in university.

Access the Welcome to Woodsworth Quercus Course

Starting June 5, 2024, you will have access to Welcome to Woodsworth: a virtual course hosted on Quercus, U of T’s learning platform. This online resource covers all the info you'll need as a new Woodsworth student: everything from course enrolment to finances to student life.

Be sure to visit the Welcome to Woodsworth course so that you can access these resources. We recommend treating this course like a real class and setting aside some time throughout the summer to go through the content. While there are no hard deadlines to complete the modules, we’ll suggest some target completion dates.
