Fall Visits to Universities In Canada


This term is the best time for Gr 11-12 students to visit a university campus in Ontario at one of several Fall open houses – showcasing academic programs, student life and opportunities. Below is a list of scheduled Open Houses at several of our top universities. Students are welcome to arrange individual campus visits outside of these planned events.

We encourage students to explore a few more universities of interest over the next few months. During your visit, you should try to sit in on classes, talk to students, and tour residences, dining halls, libraries, student lounge areas, athletic facilities, etc. Look at student newspapers and bulletin boards in order to get an idea of the range of activities available. Most universities, if given sufficient notice, will arrange for you to meet an adviser who will answer your questions and discuss your proposed program. Visiting friends at university to attend events such as homecoming will provide you with some information, but formal university tours provide a much more balanced picture.
