The University of Toronto is one of the world’s great global universities. And Innis College is your home here at U of T. We are rooted within a culturally rich Canadian region and we attract academically strong students – like yourself – from more than 160 countries. You join a diverse student body, where more than half of all first-year students identify themselves as members of a visible minority and about half speak a language other than English at home.
