Support for Ukrainian Students

Humber College continues to follow the latest information regarding Russia's invasion of Ukraine and is working to provide support for Ukrainian students. At Humber, we are fortunate to have many international students from Ukraine who are part of our community.

We continue to foster an inclusive environment and support employees and students who are impacted by this ongoing situation. If you would like to reach out to Humber International with any questions, you can use this dedicated form and our staff will respond as soon as possible. If you would like to receive assistance with the CUAET application process, please visit the International Centre at North or Lakeshore Campus during our International Student Advisor walk-in hours:
Monday to Friday
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m to 4:00 p.m.
