Welcome to Victoria College! Below you will find some important information, dates and steps to a successful start in our community.
International Student Orientating (ISO), is our welcome and orientation program designed exclusively for International Students. Our team of staff & upper year International Mentors will welcome you on campus, help you discover the city, and provide support & programming to help ensure a successful transition into university.
If you are a student living in residence at Victoria College, we will arrange for you to move into your residence room early so you have time to settle in, meet your peers, have time to complete all the logistics of moving into a new city (like setting up your bank account, getting a local SIM card, your T-card, etc.) all before Orientation and the start of classes.
