Welcome to Toronto Metropolitan University

Welcome to Toronto Metropolitan University

To be metropolitan is to be defined by big city life, from its diversity to its density to the creativity of its many people. For more than 75 years, this word has defined who we are as an institution, and now it also makes up our name. 

It’s the mix of peoples and perspectives found in big cities that drives innovation. That’s why we think of our new name as a description of our location and a statement of our identity. This campus has always been a place of gathering for people of diverse backgrounds to share information and ideas, which positions us well to prepare you for success in a globalized world.
