Save Request Info


For over 50 years, Centennial College has transformed itself from a local community college to a worldly institution. We believe in practical education for everyone by delivering hands-on, focused learning to a diverse body of students. Our focus has always been on educating students for career success, while teaching our students to be leaders. We’ve worked to build lasting partnerships with local communities, while preparing students to succeed globally by graduation.

Locally, we continue to offer industry-recognized full- and part-time programs at four Toronto campuses. Whether in our classrooms, our labs or the community, as Centennial students, students experience the real world before graduation, and become job-ready!

Areas of Expertise

Engineering Technology and Applied Science, Communications, Media and Design, Health and Community Studies, Hospitality, Tourism and Culture and Transportation, as well as English Language Learning (ELL) and foundations programs for college and university preparation. These programs are split between our four different campuses, augmented by practical, hands-on laboratories, which include teaching kitchens for our Culinary students, automotive labs and aircraft hangars for our Transportation students, and more!

Off Campus Housing

Coming to a new country can be exciting, but also intimidating. The homestay program partners you with a family who will host you in their home and help you adjust to your new city. You may choose to stay with the family for the entire duration of your study period, or just until you can find your own place. For more information, visit: https://www.centennialcollege.ca/studenthub/international/international-students/essentials/housing-options/. Centennial maintains a listing of available off-campus accommodations for you. Please visit our page on Places4Students.com.
