Student Communities

As much as York University is renowned for academic excellence, it is also known for providing students with a stimulating, multi-dimensional life outside the classroom. As a York undergraduate student you are sure to fit in, whatever your passions, motivations and interests.



York is a big university. Colleges exist to help make a big university feel small. They are a place to study, hang out, and participate in a smaller, more intimate setting where you can feel at home. Every undergraduate student is assigned to a college when they enter York based on either their Faculty and program of study (major) or the residence that they live in.
