A re-organization of your time, energy and resources is an important part of the transition to OCAD University.
In this free workshop, as part of O-DAYS! 2018, we will discuss strategies and tips on how to organize your time, set realistic goals and gain insight into your personal work style. We will engage in hands-on activities that will assist you in setting priorities, developing a schedule and managing your stress for the years ahead. Participants should bring their course schedules and any day-timers or calendars they currently use.
As part of O-DAYS! 2018, this free workshop offers hands-on exercises that will give you the opportunity to build essential tools for success in both your liberal studies and studio courses. We will look at critical reading, taking lecture notes and introduction to critique.
Finding appropriate student housing takes dedication and time.
In an ongoing effort to make this process as easy as possible, a variety of housing information services will be on campus to answer your questions.

Interested in teaching? OCAD students enjoy a unique learning environment which combines an experiential, studio-based education with liberal studies. One of the many options open to holders of the BFA or the BDes is teaching in the Ontario public school system. Students may also be interested in travel abroad as ESL teachers.
Each year, the Campus Life & Career Services Centre hosts a Bachelor of Education Information Day. Representatives from universities offering the BEd (Bachelor of Education) come to OCAD to explain and promote their programs to our students. All students are welcome. Third- and fourth-year students with an interest in teaching are strongly encouraged to attend.
This year, the University of Toronto, Queen's, York, and many other schools will be in attendance. There also will be representatives from the larger ESL recruitment firms. Confirmed participants are:
ArtHeart, Brock, JET, Medaille, Ont. College of Teachers, OISE (U of T), Queen's, Redeemer, UOIT, University of Western Ontario, York '

OCAD University is changing the way buildings and rooms are identified across campus as we transition to Project Chroma, the new student information, HR and payroll system. The resulting changes will clarify room locations and improve campus navigation while accommodating future expansion.
Each building will be assigned new identification. Instead of referring to buildings by number the new system will use letters.
205 Richmond St. W. (formerly building #7) becomes RHA
Room 7-320 becomes RHA 320
Alternately, it may be referred to as 205 Richmond St., room 320
100 McCaul St. room numbers will not change. The building identification will become MCA.
New signage will be gradually deployed as required and is being coordinated by Facilities Planning & Management.
