The Ultimate Student Guide to Virtual University Tours in Ontario

Written by Connor Briggs-Morris
virtual campus university tours in Ontario

University tours in Ontario are getting cancelled due to COVID-19. Many are now turning to virtual tours to help students choose a school for next year.

(This is part of our series on virtual university tours across Canada. You can click to view the articles for Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba & SaskatchewanQuébec, or Atlantic Canada.)

Students are understandably concerned that many university campus tours in Ontario aren’t happening as planned. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways to learn about these schools.

Choosing the right university is a big decision and campus tours are a great tool to help with it. That’s why many schools are sending students to virtual university tours to help them explore the campuses and get their questions answered. We’re putting together a massive list (and updating it) to keep track of all the virtual university tours in Ontario.
