Fall 2021

What do international students need to know about the Fall term?

U of T is working closely with the Government to ensure that international students can study even if they are not able to make it to Toronto. International students are encouraged to contact and work with experts at the Centre for International Experience.

Students may also want to read the Vice Provost Student’s FAQ on the Fall term.

What’s the decision for this Fall?

With few exceptions, courses will be delivered remotely. We will provide as much in-person co-curricular activity as we can offer safely, following public health guidance.

For Staff and Faculty Members

Administration & Operations

Can I go into the Health Sciences Building to work in my office?

No, the building is closed to all faculty, staff and students with very few exceptions.

A handful of faculty, staff and students were designated “essential” to operations and/or research and have special access.

If you have any questions about building access, please contact Robin Hurst.
