Profile

Established in 1967, the University of Toronto Mississauga is the second largest division of U of T, numbering 13,300 undergraduate students, 600 graduate students, and over 2300 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; 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 intercampus transit to be part of the best activities, performances, tournaments, lectures, and events on all three UT campuses. Mississauga is conveniently located only 30 minutes west of downtown Toronto.
