Ryerson University is where a world of possibilities collide. It starts with our location in the heart of a global city and runs through every aspect of campus life. Here, you’ll experience a diverse and creative community enriched by a multitude of perspectives, underscored by equity, diversion and inclusion.
As a first year student, we know the importance of immersing yourself in student life, meeting new people and discovering fresh perspectives, so Ryerson has adapted all of our community-building programs for fall 2021 to ensure new undergraduate and graduate students can participate. Join us at Get Ryerson Ready for our pre-orientation programming, meet your fellow students through orientation events, discover our residence options, and experience the benefits of our many other programs that will help you build a supportive network of friends and mentors for years to come.
Winter Orientation takes place takes place between January 11 to January 21, 2022 and gives you the chance to connect with other new students, get familiar with different services and supports available to you, and get to know your way around campus. Whether it's welcoming you back to campus or welcoming you for the first time, we're excited to see you!
Community is at the heart of Ryerson’s Housing & Residence Life. During COVID-19, the safety of students has been the top priority and staff have adapted and found creative ways to ensure incoming students have a stable, secure community to join. While the pandemic has impacted the traditional experience of residence life, some experiences haven’t changed. Residence Advisors continue to be accessible to support students; Academic Links are available to help students navigate online learning; and senior student leaders have been hired to focus on community building.

The Tri-Mentoring Program’s (TMP) educational priority is to mentor each student using their individual experience to find their sense of belonging on campus. The “tri” represents our peer-to-peer, career, and group mentoring activities.
PeopleGrove helps provide access to mentoring through group discussion boards and tools for engagement.
