Hello and welcome!



Thank you for visiting the website of the Office of the Vice-Provost Students. Whether you’ve come to find particular information or just to browse and see what we’re up to, I think you’ll notice that our tagline, “Partners in Student Success,” is more than just, well, a line.

Student experience at York is at the centre of all we do, and we understand that success is a broad, often individually defined, concept. It encompasses academic achievement, of course, but also personal and professional development, physical and mental well-being, as well as a sense of belonging to the world, of finding one’s unique place in it. When we know we belong, we can confidently contribute our particular talents to the wider communities around us.

There is no better way to learn to contribute to community than by experiencing it first — and that is the kind of environment we strive to create daily here at York. Wide-ranging and solid support services, extracurricular activities by the hundreds, leadership and career opportunities: all you need to do is look around, and you will find them at every turn on our two beautiful, welcoming campuses. I encourage you to seek them out, explore and engage. You might find pathways you didn’t even know you were looking for.

This is your university, and we’re immensely proud that you have chosen to be here. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.


I look forward to seeing you around campus,
