About

History

University College was established in 1853 by The University of Toronto Act as a nonsectarian institution of higher education.Architects Frederic Cumberland and William Storm, inspired by Oxford and Cambridge Universities in England, designed the building in the Romanseque-Revival style. Construction began on October 4, 1856.

Education

Students are focussed on the finish line for exams and final projects at this time of year – so when email reminders for course evaluations start pouring in, it can be tempting to let them slide.

Research

While some academic institutions are satisfied with merely creating new knowledge, at U of T Mississauga we go beyond this tenet by consistently striving to also share the knowledge we generate through established partnerships and connections with local government and industry, and through strong networks with our scholarly colleagues and collaborators from around the world.
