Learning Community

Participate in all the opportunities at TWU and get the extra benefit of learning within the U1 community.


In a cohort, you begin the program at the same time and participate in some of your classes together. You will get to know other students and develop meaningful friendships.


You will also have freedom to take courses of your choice each semester. These courses may be in your major or something you are interested in. You can begin to make friends with Canadian students in your major and still get the help from your Learning Coach on your assignments, readings, and study skills

Parent Partnerships

If your parents want to come for a visit, we will arrange some activities for them, such as a chance for them to sit in on your classes, meetings with professors and with the TWU President.


Most U1 students will live on campus, where you participate in dorm life with roommates from North America and many other countries. Your Resident Assistant (R.A.) and Resident Director (R.D.) will support you and help you as well. Our campus residences are separate for men and women for your privacy and safety. Dorm life at TWU is vibrant and exciting. You can go on a virtual tour here.
