University of Ontario Institute of Technology receives more than 3,500 applications

Oshawa, Ont. - Canada' s newest university, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology is extremely pleased to receive more than 3,500 applications across all programs for enrolment in September 2003. The number of applicants who rank the university among their top three choices supports its role in helping to meet a critical need.

The university will make every effort to accommodate these students while maintaining the highest quality academic standards, which are key to students' success. The university is hiring highly qualified faculty in preparation for an enrolment of between 700 and 1,000 full-time students this fall. Part-time studies will also be offered to first-year students beginning in September.

Although the deadline for online applications from secondary students has passed, the application figures are preliminary as the Ontario Universities' Application Centre is still reviewing and distributing applications to Ontario universities. Final application numbers are expected in February.

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology offers nine undergraduate degree programs in areas of business and information technology, sciences, engineering, nursing, justice studies and education.

Located less than an hour' s drive east of Toronto, the university is constructing a series of buildings including a library and new residence village surrounded by beautiful outdoor spaces in a student-focused, pedestrian-friendly campus. All first-year students will be guaranteed a place in residence. The university' s first academic building will include lecture halls, classrooms, labs and meeting rooms.
