Introducing ACORN.

ACORN will replace ROSI-SWS as the student-facing online service at U of T, with a more convenient, personalized and guided online experience.

You have things to do, ACORN is here to help.

Our goal is to provide an improved overall experience and empower you to make informed decisions about your student life at U of T.

The first ACORN release will introduce a modern new design as well as provide enhancements to program and course enrolment.

"The University should be more responsive to students' needs… They should listen more to students." - 1st year, Faculty of Arts & Science Student

Created with a user-centred approach. Students helped us organize ACORN content using meaningful terminology.
Ongoing student input. We interview students to understand their goals and frustrations they face with current processes and systems.
Tested to ensure our intent works in practice. Students participate in usability studies, testing functional prototypes and identifying issues.
