KPE, in partnership with U of T Student Life’s Academic Success team, offers a series of online workshops and virtual one-on-one academic success advising appointments with a Learning Strategist to support your academic success goals.
Learning Strategist Appointments
Virtual Learning Strategist appointments are recommended for students who wish to achieve academic success in their university studies and improve their grades, learning skills and study habits.
During these appointments, students will be provided with a space to meet individually with a learning strategist to discuss their learning goals and needs either virtually or in-person. We offer an inclusive, engaging, and supportive environment for U of T students to excel in their academic pursuits while being provided with customized learning support.
Sessions are usually 50 minutes in length. We begin by reviewing your academic goals and what you are hoping to accomplish in the session. Then we’ll work collaboratively to provide you with customized, practical learning strategies that cater to your learning needs.
Career Education & Exploration Resources
Develop your career path and get valuable advice about finding work, accessing the job market and further education by visiting U of T Student Life's Explore and Start a Career website.

KPE Wellness Counsellor
The Faculty, in partnership with the U of T Health and Wellness Centre, offers confidential counselling services to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in KPE degree programs.
Many students find it helpful to meet with a counsellor to learn how to manage stress around schedules, exams, relationships, or any unexpected challenge.
Liz Montgomery, Registered Psychotherapist is available to listen and help you identify strategies to enhance your own inner resources.
To book a virtual or in-person appointment, contact the Health and Wellness Centre at 416-978-8030 and ask to book a time with the KPE counsellor.
Note: Wellness Counsellor services are only available to students who live in Ontario due to provincial regulatory requirements.
The Benson Lounge (BN 202) and Benson Pool Gallery (also called the Gallery Lounge) are multi-functional student spaces for studying, group work and socializing.
The Benson Pool Gallery is located in the second floor corridor that connects the Warren Stevens Building to the Clara Benson Building.
Students in the Master of Professional Kinesiology program can also access the dedicated MPK Student Lounge in the Warren Stevens building, located down the hall from WS B67. A code is required to access to the lounge.
