Multifaith Centre: Beliefs are a big part of who we are and how we learn, and while U of T is a secular institution, we respect everyone’s right to worship. The Multi-Faith Centre supports the spiritual well-being of everyone on campus and provides opportunities for people to learn from each other while exploring questions of meaning, purpose and identity. Our facilities and programs accommodate a wide variety of spiritual and faith-based practices and encourage interfaith dialogue and spiritual development as part of the learning experience for all students.
The Centre for Women and Trans People is committed to providing a safe, harassment-free drop in space for all women and trans people on campus. We provide free support, referrals, resources and advocacy on issues of sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, ageism, violence, health and poverty through our workshops, events, services and programming.

The Centre was founded by U of T women undergraduate students in 1986. They organized to create a safe, accessible space for all women at U of T to gather, seek support, and advocate on issues relevant to them. The Centre is a student funded, volunteer driven, non profit, campus, community organization governed by its Collective.

Resisting Oppression and Reclaiming Spirituality (ROARS): a bi-weekly DROP-IN peer support group that provides a safer, positive, and inclusive space for self-identified women, trans, two spirit, and gender non-binary/non-conforming/genderqueer people to discuss their religious and spiritual experiences in a queer positive and anti-oppressive framework.

Women and Gender Studies Students' Union: The WGSSU acts as a source of information and support for students. A major goal of the WGSSU is to combine student activism with academic studies. Committees have been established to address student concerns such as increasing tuition, clothing made in sweatshops, violence against women and other local and global issues.

The WGSSU provides students with the opportunity to develop friendships, work relationships, and a strong academic learning environment. Each year, the WGSSU organizes several events, both academic and social, for the undergraduate student body in Women and Gender Studies.

Students for Barrier Free Access: SBA is a non-profit, University of Toronto student-levy organization that advocates for equity, access, and the rights of disabled students and supports more generally, the greater disability community. SBA and its allies work towards eliminating physical, informational, and attitudinal barriers on campus and in the wider community.

The Centre for Indigenous Studies (CIS): is mandated to foster innovative, participatory research with urban Indigenous peoples and develop collaborations with Indigenous communities and community organizations. CIS cultivates research related to Indigenous pedagogy, methodologies and epistemology that focus on Indigenous peoples as cultural workers, social change agents, leaders and thinkers. CIS also supports the recruitment and retention of Indigenous graduate and undergraduate students, and is working to enhance the visibility of Indigenous peoples at the University of Toronto

Association of Part-Time Undergraduate Students: The Association of Part-time Undergraduate Students at the University of Toronto (APUS) represents over 6000 fall/winter and 14,000 summer part-time students across all three campuses of the University of Toronto. APUS was founded in 1968 by part-time students who wanted to make part-time study an integral part of the University. We endeavour to ensure that the rights of all part-time students are respected, provide cost-saving services, programs and events, and represent the voices of part-time undergraduate students across the University and to all levels of government. We are fundamentally committed to the principle of access to education for all. We strive to ensure that the academic and social needs of part-time undergraduate students are met by building a more inclusive educational and campus life experience for all part-time students.
