Whether learning on-campus, or online, students can access a suite of self-help resources, participate in interactive sessions, and access one-on-one and group supports that are specially designed to help ensure their success.

Our 24/7 online/phone mental health and well-being tool for students is called My Student Support (MySSP) and the app is available in both the Apple and Google Play stores. This great tool is available in multiple languages around the clock. MySSP also has supports for healthy living and student success, in addition to confidential counselling.

Yorkville University provides academic accommodations and accessibility supports for students with permanent, episodic, or temporary disabilities or medical conditions, helping to create a learning environment in which disabilities are not a barrier to completion of courses and programs. We do this, in part, by removing barriers to access, deploying technologies that facilitate access for students with disabilities, and providing academic accommodations.

Our Accessibility and Academic Accommodations office is available on-campus (Ontario) and online (Zoom or Phone) to assist students and faculty with developing an accessible learning environment.

A team of Career Services Advisors offers one-on-one and group sessions, plus, webinars on several relevant career development topics, including career exploration, resume and cover letter writing, interview preparation, researching the labour market, and more. Career Services Advisors also maintain our YU Job Board, provide advice for finding part-time jobs, offer self-help resources, and host webinars and employer information sessions. The overall goal of this service is to help students identify the multiple career paths their program/degree might lead to, supporting students to find jobs and effectively manage, grow, and develop their careers.

International students also get free access to Devant’s career support portal — home to their Get Hired Master Class, weekly live workshops, live Q&A with immigration lawyers, AI-driven resume builders, mock interview tools, and a whole lot more.

Ontario Transit Information


The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) offers a monthly Metropass for post-secondary students at a discounted price. A TTC Metropass allows you to travel on TTC vehicles (Subway, Streetcar, Bus, and WheelTrans) anytime and for any length of time for the duration of the month.


How do you get a TTC Metropass?

  • Step 1: Obtain the following: proof of enrollment letter, current student card confirming that you are an eligible student enrolled in a full-time or part-time degree granting program, and a piece of government issued photo identification.
  • Step 2: Bring the above items to the TTC Photo Centre at Bathurst Subway Station (located on Subway Line 2, one stop east of Bloor-Yonge Station), and have your photo taken for a TTC Student Photo Identification Card. For the most up-to-date cost of the TTC Student Photo Identification Card, please check You must always travel on the TTC with your TFS Student Card AND your TTC Student Card!

Hours of Operation for Bathurst Station Photo Centre:

  • Monday-Friday: 3pm-7pm
  • Saturday: 10am-2pm
  • Sundays and Statutory holidays: Closed

For the most up-to-date Hours of Operation, please check

Bathurst Station is not an accessible subway station. If you are traveling with a mobility device or have difficulty accessing Bathurst Photo ID Centre, please contact Customer Service at 416-393-4636 (weekdays, 8:00am – 5:00pm, closed holidays) in advance for assistance.


If you find that your transit costs could be less than what a monthly TTC Metropass is worth, consider purchasing a PRESTO card. PRESTO cards can be manually or automatically loaded with funds from your bank account and deducted according to how many trips you take. To pay a student fare, you will need to set a concession on your PRESTO card, which can be done at the Customer Service Centre at Davisville Subway Station (Subway Line 1) – 1900 Yonge Street. Bring your TTC Student ID Card (see above) and your TFS Student Card.

You are welcome to contact student services if you have any questions about transit and transit fares in Toronto.
