Welcome Victorians!


Information for Orientation 2018 to come! 



Orientation is a great opportunity to become familiar with Victoria College and its community. Every year a group of Orientation Executives strive to provide the incoming class with a wide variety of events that welcome you to our campus! After residence Move-In on Sunday, September 3rd, Orientation officially kicks off at 8am on Monday, September 4th and runs until Wednesday, September 6th. (Psst - there's also Karaoke Thursday!)

Orientation 2017 will be more jam-packed with events than ever before – you certainly won't fall short of things to do! This year we are continuing to offer academic information sessions to help you navigate your first year at university. From the Registrar’s Academic Welcome to the Transitional Seminars, you will find everything you need to become acquainted with academics at the university level. We also have some exciting social events such as our "Scarlet and Gold Party" and "1836: Welcome Home Vic". There is always something for everyone to enjoy!

As one of the larger colleges at the University of Toronto, Vic has the resources, dedication, and passion to provide its incoming students with the best Orientation events - Vic has the reputation of having the best Orientation Week at U of T for a reason! Check out our Orientation schedule listed under the "Orientation Week" tab to see what interests you! Hope to see you there! 


A "commuter" is a student who travels from home in order to get to class everyday - in other words, pretty much everyone who does not live in residence! Being one of the only colleges at U of T to offer extended programming exclusively for commuter students, we here at Victoria College aim to provide you with a memorable introduction to university life. Prior to September's Orientation Week, Commuter Orientation, or "Comm-O" as we like to call it, is a weekend of programming exclusively for our incoming class of commuter students - and yes, you can go to both O-Week and Comm-O!

All students who register for Commuter Orientation are guaranteed a room to stay in for Saturday night, and food throughout the weekend. Activities planned include talks on university life, information sessions, tours, socials, and lots of fun! This year registration for Comm-O opens July 1 and the week itself takes place Aug. 12-13 - that's just 3 weeks before Orientation Week, so make sure to register soon!


Transition Mentorship Program

Victoria College's Transition Mentorship Program guides first year students through a successful transition from high school to university.

Through our 9-Part Success Series, the Transition Mentorship Program aims to create a welcoming campus environment where students can connect with their Mentor and other first year students, and likewise get the support and skills to succeed in first year at Victoria College!
