About Toronto Metropolitan University

In April 2022, the University announced our new name of Toronto Metropolitan University, which will be implemented in a phased approach.

Learn more about our next chapter.

We are Canada’s leader in innovative, career-oriented education. Here you will challenge the ordinary and achieve the extraordinary. You will go beyond what is expected to find new connections and new experiences, and you will do it all at the heart of one of Canada’s most vibrant urban centres.

We are home to more than 45,000 students, including 2,600 master’s and PhD students, 3,100 faculty and staff, and nearly 185,000 alumni worldwide. We offer 63 bachelor’s programs, more than 60 master’s and PhD programs, and 57 specialized minors.

Special Characteristics

At Toronto Met, we are dedicated to creating a culture of action. For us, education and experience go hand-in-hand – what you learn in our classrooms and dynamic programs is enhanced by real-world knowledge. There’s nothing more exhilarating than making connections – between students and professors, individuals and networks, original thoughts and actual reality. We, like Toronto, are an exceptionally multicultural community, rich with diversity of perspectives, cultures and opportunities.

At the intersection of mind and action, we are recognized for:

  • being a leading centre for learning in action,
  • providing opportunities for connecting beyond classrooms,
  • being part of our urban community in the heart of Toronto,
  • offering our global connections and opportunities to engage in international learning experiences,
  • maintaining our commitment to student support for well-being and academic success,
  • providing an education that will prepare you to lead and adapt in an ever-changing world and
  • offering Zone learning that lets you meet and work with students from across the university to create, develop and launch your ideas.

Academic Accommodation Support provides you with services for disabilities accommodation and the support you need to achieve academic success, and access to the university within the provisions of the Ontario Human Rights Code.
