Today, UT is one of 14 state universities in Ohio, and its primary mission is to 'improve the human condition'.
It offers more than 300 undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs, across law, engineering, business, and occupational therapy among its nationally ranked programs.

Over the year, the temperature typically varies from 19°F to 83°F and is rarely below 3°F or above 91°F.

Apartment Guide has created a specialty apartment search for The University of Toledo to help students, faculty, and employees find the best off-campus living options. With a large inventory of multifamily apartments, students won’t have to waste their valuable time looking all over.
All first-year and second-year students who live outside of a twenty-five-mile radius from the university must live on campus and participate in the meal plan program. Living on campus allows students to focus on what matters most. Statistics show students who live on campus have higher grade point averages, are more involved, and have higher retention rates.
Conveniently located close to dining and classes, on-campus housing is a hassle-free, safe home to live with friends and enjoy the University of Toledo in students' backyard. As a student required to live on campus next academic year, we recommend students apply now so current residents can get the best choice of rooms on campus.

Indian student association

The Indian Students Cultural Organisation (ISCO) is a non-profit organisation for all students from India, of Indian descent, or interested in Indian culture. It has been given the Best Student Organisation Award consecutively from 2001 to 2004 and the 3rd Best Student Organisation Award for 2014-2015. Our primary objectives are to promote service and leadership opportunities and create an environment where students of different backgrounds can bond over our beloved culture. For our many international students, we know how tough it is to travel to a new country, thousands of miles away from home, and to settle down in American culture, as well as feeling homesick from all your friends and family back home. Our Indian-American students understand how important it is to find people like you who understand the balance of being both American and Indian and making sure you still stay connected to your heritage. We endeavour to complement student academic programs and enhance the overall educational experience of students through their participation in social, cultural, intellectual, and recreational activities. Our organisation tries to spread the word of “togetherness” by bringing one community to share Indian culture, regardless of gender, race, orientation, etc.
