Why Ontario Tech: Student Support

Aiden Dufty


Starting university can be an overwhelming experience for many students. The combination of new surroundings, rigorous coursework and the pressure to succeed can make it a challenging and stressful time. However, it's important to remember that you are not alone in feeling this way. Every student, at some point, will find themselves in need of support. Thankfully, Ontario Tech recognizes this and provides a variety of options to help students meet their individual needs and thrive in their academic journey.

Academic support

Academic support is crucial for student success. That's why we offer various resources to cater to every student's needs. The writing room provides a quiet and comfortable space for you to work on your assignments and get feedback from experienced tutors. The peer tutor program allows you to receive one-on-one assistance from your peers who have excelled in their courses.

This can be super helpful for difficult courses in order to up your grade! The Student Learning Centre offers workshops and study groups to enhance students' learning skills. From writing to engineering we've got the help you need at the Student Learning Centre.

Additionally, one-on-one sessions with trained professionals are offered to provide personalized support and guidance. These sessions provide a safe and confidential space for you to discuss your concerns and receive the necessary assistance.
