Established in 1967, the University of Toronto Mississauga is the second largest division of the University of Toronto, numbering 15,166 undergraduate students, 848 graduate students, and over 2,300 full time employees. Famous alumni include Dr. Roberta Bondar, filmmaker Richie Mehta, writer/poet Dionne Brand, and Twitter vice-president Kristine Stewart, among others,.
U of T faculty received almost 25% of Canada's prestigious research awards over the last 20 years, although they represent only 7% of all Canadian professors. UTM's faculty members have collectively won more Ontario Colleges and Universities Faculty Association (OCUFA) awards for teaching excellence than any other college or organization at the University. Multi-campus opportunities: The Mississauga campus offers many programs and courses identical to those at the St. George (downtown Toronto) campus while others are unique to UTM. Returning students wishing to select courses at the University's other campuses may do so with relative ease, and students regularly use the inter-campus transit to be part of the best activities, performances, tournaments, lectures, and events on all three U of T campuses. Mississauga is conveniently located only 30 kilometres west of downtown Toronto.
The University of Toronto Mississauga is home to over 900 graduate students, both in the research and professional streams. We have more than 40 years of experience supervising graduate students in numerous disciplines, providing training and guidance in their quest for a successful postgraduate career.
The University of Toronto offers residence accommodations for 3,300 undergraduate and graduate students on its St. George Campus in downtown Toronto.
While ensuring the student's academic success is the University's main focus, students are also encouraged to get an early start in career investigation and skills development. The Career Centre offers career counseling, career resource library, employment services (summer, contract, part-time and full-time), job-shadowing, resume and interviewing clinics, career development workshops and seminars, employer panels and networking opportunities.
